Card Stock Giraffe Craft Project with pattern for Young Children

This long necked giraffe craft will make a fun addition to your homemade zoo. Kids love seeing all the exotic animals and making and adding this giraffe to their collection will put a smile on their faces. You can also tell them all about where giraffe’s live and what they eat.

Trivia: Giraffes primarily eat the leaves and twigs of acacia, mimosa, and wild apricot trees.  Still, their diet does extend well beyond the more commonly eaten plants just mentioned. They even eat some fruit. Source: Online Biology Dictionary – What do giraffes eat?
