Construction Paper Monkey Craft

My daughter is a huge fan of Curious George. She also loves making crafts, especially during school time. For our lesson on the letter M, she had a blast making a construction paper monkey.


  • Brown and tan construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Wiggle eyes
  • Glue
  • Red marker


  1. Cut one large, one medium, and two small circles from the brown construction paper and one medium, one small, and two tiny circles from the tan construction paper.
  2. Glue the tan circles on top of the brown circles.
  3. Glue the medium circle above the large circle and the two smalls circles at the top of the medium circle.
  4. Cut four long strips from the brown construction paper.
  5. Fold four brown strips into accordions.
  6. Glue the four accordions on the back of the large and medium circles to form arms and legs.
  7. Glue two wiggle eyes on the small tan circle.
  8. Draw a mouth with the red marker under the wiggle eyes.
