Rhino Paper Crown for Kids
Charge! With this 3d paper crown, you better stay clear when your kid wears this headband! This rhino paper crown was requested by my almost 4-year-old nephew. He’s been able to visit the zoo again after the lockdown and has been asking me to do art classes on all his favorite zoo animals. This week we made a rhino paper crown. It’s super easy to do and looks quite impressive. I made the template out of a quick sketch and added leaves that you can cut out for decorating the paper crown since rhinos are herbivores. It’s a great art project for kids that love rhinoceros. I remember as a child, I thought rhino was from a different planet because of their leather rough skin that looked like armor and the odd placement of the horns between their tiny eyes.
But as I was planning out this art project, I developed a whole new appreciation for rhinoceros. During my research I learned so many fun facts about rhinoceros. Here are some facts you can share with your child if he or she doesn't know them already!
FUN FACTS ABOUT RHINOS
- Rhinoceros are the second largest mammals in the world after elephant
- The name rhinoceros actually means “nose horn”
- Black and white rhinoceros are both grey!
- Rhinoceros are herbivores, they eat grasses, leaves, shoots, buds and fruits. This might inspire your child to eat more veggies!
This is why I love creating art projects for kids. I benefit so much through topic research and design development. It’s as if I am learning about the world again for the first time.
