Little Gorilla Craft

Letter G was the letter of the week, and we read Little Gorilla by Ruth Bornstein. This is a cute book about a little gorilla who is loved by everyone in the jungle, but when he starts to grow big, he isn’t sure if everyone will still love him.


We made a craft to show Little Gorilla growing up.

washable brown paint
brown yarn
gorilla face printable
banner paper or white cardstock
piece of colored cardstock or craft foam

First get your student’s foot full of brown paint. I covered the bottom of a plastic shoe-box with paint and had my daughters step in it and then step onto banner paper.

Next, cut out the footprint after the paint has dried. I had three of my children do this craft so that we could have 3 different sized gorillas.

After the footprint is cut-out, adhere onto colored cardstock or craft foam. Cut small pieces of brown yarn and glue onto the top of the foot.

Print and cut out the gorilla face and ears and glue onto the top of the foot.

Here is Little Gorilla growing up!
