Printable Flamingo Template


Summertime is the perfect time to do some crafts! Kids are home from school and need something to keep them busy. I like to do things in themes so one week can be ice cream, mermaids, and of course flamingos! Flamingos can go with a tropical theme too. Are you looking for flamingo crafts? Well look no further! Print out and decorate this adorable flamingo template. This is the perfect easy summer craft for little kids.

The flamingo craft template can be just cut and paste, this is perfect for toddlers. You can also add feathers, paint, and pipe cleaners to make it your own. If your kids prefer to color use the coloring version. I like having different options because everyone has their own way of crafting.

My daughter used to always love looking at the flamingos when we went to the zoo. They are just calm and unfazed by humans. I always wondered how they could balance on one foot. We would try to do a flamingo stance but I don’t have the balance of a flamingo.

Just print it out on your home printer or at a print shop and get to crafting!

I love flamingos because they can stand on one leg and of course because they are pink and pretty. I’ll add some fun flamingo facts at the end for the kids to learn more about flamingos.

Make this craft flamingo free printable template your own with fun colors and you can even glue on some pink feathers for extra fun!
