Directions to make walrus with template
Download the printable at the end of the post. It has two versions, one is pre-coloured, and the other has outlines which kids can colour and make the Walrus. I recommend printing on thick Paper like Cardstock.
Cut out each element of the Walrus craft template.
Glue all the pieces together with a paper glue stick. You can leave it as it is or create a background of the Arctics.
Paste a White foam sheet or white Paper about one-third of the width on a blue cardstock paper. This represents snowy land near the sea. We also added some foam Ice Blocks on the sea and some waves with white chack.
