This narwhal craft is perfect for an ocean theme, or for kids who are heading off to the beach this summer. It’s a great narwhal craft for preschool, grade school or to go along with a fun narwhal book.
Sometimes, adding a themed craft to a favorite children’s book is just what kids need to get crafty while working on skills like scissor use and fine motor skills. We used one of our favorite new books, “Not Quite Narwhal” by Jessi Sima to come up with a fun narwhal craft that is heavy on the scissor skill practice. If you are looking to help a child with scissor use, we’ve got TONS of scissor skill activities here on the site.
Make a Narwhal Craft and work on Scissor Skills
To make the narwhal craft, you’ll need just a few materials:
- Blue cardstock (cardstock is thicker paper, so it’s excellent for slowing down scissors to ensure more accuracy when cutting along lines, especially for younger scissor users.)
- White cardstock
- Scissors (These are the best for kids who are learning to cut.)
- Not Quite Narwhal (optional, but definitely recommended)
