Things Needed to Make the Zig Zag Paper Mango Craft
- Mango Craft Template (Download at the end of the post)
- Construction paper
- Paper Cutter or Scissor
- Glue Stick
Step by Step-by-step Instructions make the Zig Zag Paper Mango Craft
Let’s start by creating yellow paper strips for the craft. Utilize a paper trimmer to cut strips that are 1cm wide. While scissors can be used, it tends to be a time-consuming process.
Alternatively, you can opt to purchase a pack of Paper strips for this craft.
Download the Free mango template provided at the end of the post and print it on 120 GSM paper. The page contains two mango templates; cut it in half and begin with one template.
The mango template includes horizontal reference lines, serving as a guide for creating the zig-zag pattern. Apply glue to the top segment and start sticking the paper in a zig-zag fashion, folding the strip between the lines.
Once you reach the end, trim the excess.
Repeat the process for the next segment. With practice, kids can easily master this folding style, which is excellent for enhancing fine motor skills.
Continue affixing the papers until the entire mango is covered. Add a brown strip at the top for the mango profile.
Now, cut the mango out. The base outline is slightly visible through the yellow paper. Alternatively, flip the paper over and cut along the mango outline seen from the backside.
Your mango is almost ready. Attach a green leaf made of construction paper to the pedicel, and your zig-zag paper craft is complete.
The size of the mango resembles that of most mango varieties and is about the size of your hand.
