25+ Beaver Activities to Enjoy with Your Kids

What immediately pops out of your head when you picture a beaver? It may bring back memories of Canada🇨🇦 for a few of us. For some, it can evoke images🖼 of those strong, distinctive teeth that are well-known for being put to use to make dams!

It should come as no surprise that those teeth are likely the most recognizable aspect of a beaver because they keep growing for the whole of their life!

The beaver uses these teeth to construct dams, which are essential for preserving the ecology and sanitizing the water💧. I bet you were unaware of that!

Fascinating Beaver Activities for kids

Given the enormous benefits beavers provide to the ecosystem, it is only fitting to educate ourselves on this fascinating animal—especially in light of International Beaver Day on April 7th. 

These delightful beaver crafts are perfect for youngsters to make, enjoy, and learn from! So what are you waiting for? Join your kids for a fun day activity with these multifarious beaver crafts. 

Pringles can beaver crafts for kids

Although Pringles cans are used for a variety of crafts, did you know that they can also be used to create beavers? 

You will need a few things to do this craft with your kids:-


  • Single-serve Pringles cans
  • Brown🟤 construction paper📄
  • 3″ circle punch
  • Brown ink
  • White construction paper📄
  • Scissors✂
  • Scotch tape
  • Craft glue
  • Googly eyes👀


  • First, you have to take off the Pringles cans’ plastic covers and reserve them for a different craft.
  • After taking off the covers, you can cut a piece of brown construction paper to the same length as the cans to begin with. 
  • Then, you can put a piece around every can and secure it with tape. 
  • To make it easy for the Beavers to determine which flavor each Pringles can contain, I decided to leave a tiny space. It’s up to you whether you will keep the space. 
  • Children love cartoon characters. So, to make facial features, cut holes using the punch. You can snip one oval oval👃, one tail, and two ears👂 off of each beaver using scissors. 
  • With the help of ink, you can highlight each one’s borders. For every beaver, cut a pair of white⚪ rectangular-shaped teeth. 
  • Then, just attach the ears, eyes, nose, and teeth to a single face at once using the glue. 
  • Now, all you have to do is connect it to the can’s top with a long strip of tape. Although you might paste them, using tape would allow you to enjoy the chips without having to harm the beaver. 
  • And finally, attach the tails with tape to the containers’ bottoms.  

B for beaver recycled cd craft

Check out this simple activity that kids may do with beavers before throwing away those old, damaged CDs📀. Googly eyes and a little brown wool will do the trick. To demonstrate the beaver’s laborious efforts, you can add a few sticks and leaves to the craft. 


  • Printable Template
  • Brown Felt or Construction Paper
  • Beige Felt or Construction Paper
  • Black Felt or Construction Paper
  • White Felt or Construction Paper
  • Light brown Felt or Construction Paper
  • Black yarn🧶
  • An old CD📀
  • Scissors ✂
  • Use a glue gun or a glue stick if using paper.
  • Googly eyes👀


  • On letter- or A4-sized paper, firstly, you have to create the craft design. Cut off each part, including the brown head, ears👂, nose👃, muzzle, and teeth.
  • Now you have to sketch these cutout shapes into felt using them as pointing markers. We made this project using a 2mm firm felt. As an alternative, you may use similar-colored craft foam or cardboard.
  • To attach the beaver’s face to an old CD📀, you can try your glue gun when you’re working with felt. Next, add the ears and, lastly, the teeth.
  • Now, you’ll have to arrange each component in layers: place the muzzle over the teeth, then the nostril, and lastly, the eyes and whiskers.

Kids five years old and up may enhance their eye-hand coordination, motor abilities, and sense of sight with this easily accessible B for beaver activity, so if your kids are five years or more, this craft is a bingo! 

These can also be made in their homes or classrooms by instructors and parents, who can then let their kids or students put them together on their own. This activity will help enhance your kids’ motor skills. Educators can create these crafts to use as dolls🎎, props, or simply to decorate their classes.

Paper plate beaver crafts for kids

You don’t need to have many things for this craft beer. Just using a paper plate and a printed beaver pattern, you can create this sweet beaver activity.

This craft will be useful for a letter B topic activity, mammal crafts, teaching nature mammals, Canada🇨🇦 Day celebration🎊, or simply for fun.

You may also turn your beaver project into a beaver mask by cutting out spaces and not using the designed eyes. Give your kid access to a tongue depressor or paint stir stick so they may prop it close to their head. This will also be a toy🧸 for your kid. 


  • paper plate,
  • brown paint and paintbrush, something to color with (or color printer),
  • scissors,
  • glue,
  • paper,
  • printer,
  • Optional: You can substitute large, wiggly eyes for the template eyes.
  • Optional: Use a black marker to draw whiskers on the face.
  • Optional FOR MASK: Paint Stir Stick, thin strip of wood, or Tongue Depressor


  • Initially, you have to apply brown paint on the underside of the paper plate.
  • Then, you’ll select a suitable craft design for beaver from the internet and print it out.
  • Then you have to trim off and color🎨 the design pieces (if you’re using the black and white form of the craft). The majority of the components and shapes are quite simple for kids of any age to cut out; however, some of the more difficult ones, like the hair, can require adult assistance, so I’d advise you to participate in your kids’ game and activity. 
  • Now, to create a beaver face, with glue, stick the cut✂ out parts to the plate:
  • Then, you have to fix the teeth to the face’s lower portion.
  • After that, attach the ears with glue to the sides of the head, close to the top.
  • Then, you’ll have to attach the hair with glue to the upper center of the head.
  • Over the part of the teeth, you will have to fix the nose👃 to the face with glue.
  • Attach the eyes by pasting them to the face beneath the hairline over the nose (or make eye holes in a mask).
  • Place glued brows just above eyes.
  • Drawing a mustache on the beaver’s face with a black marker is a personal choice. I did it with my kids for a more animated view; you can do what your little champs like. 

Optional: You can attach a small piece of wood, a tongue depressor, or a paint stir stick with wrapping tape or a piece of duct tape if you’re designing a face mask🤙👺.

Paper roll beaver craft for kindergartners

Beavers enjoy hours on the ground, in fields, marshes, and also in aquatic environments, and their visible eyelids allow them to see beneath the water without having their eyes wet.

So try this activity if you want to teach your kids more about beavers. 


  • Colored Card Stock
  • Googly Eyes
  • Pom Poms
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Crafter’s Tape
  • Black Gel Pen
  • Low Temperature Glue Gun (or white glue)


  • If you’ve got a toilet paper📄 roll, split it into two coils that are each 2 inches tall. After that, color one red🔴 and another brown🟤.
  • If you want to make a customized sheet roll, cut out two (6′′ x 2′′) pieces of cardboard stock, one that is red and another brown.
  • Using cardboard stock, you’ll need to punch out a round shape, two tiny ears, and a pair of feet. Also, you’ll have to punch out a tiny white box📦 for the beaver’s mouth.
  • Place the ears👂 behind the headpiece using crafter’s paper, white glue, or a glue stick. It’ll be better if you use a black ink marker to make a little smiley and add two tiny googly eyes👀 and one little brown fluff ball for the tip of the nose. Attach a tiny white paper wedge to denote the beaver’s teeth.
  • Glue the beaver’s face onto the surface of the paper roll’s top. Glue two medium-sized pom poms to serve as the hands. Lastly, fasten the feet onto the bottom.
  • Create one red and one brown. Now that Gus and Cooper have become your builders, you’re set!

Paper bag beaver puppet craft for kids

Large dams constructed by beavers can reach up to 850 meters in length! With the aid of this handmade paper bag craft, you can create a miniature beaver to depict some dam construction.


  • Paper bag
  • Colored craft paper
  • Glue
  • Marker
  • Pencil
  • Scissors


  • Get your paper bag👜 beaver doll craft pattern after printing it. The head, belly, tail, inner ears, nose, eyes, tooth, cheeks, and legs of the beaver are all included in the pattern.
  • Using the relevant colored craft papers, outline the sections of the paper bag beaver doll🎎 pattern and cut them out. 
  • We applied the pink💕 color 🎨 for the cheekbones and inner ears, black⚫ for the nasal area, and different hues of brown for the head, belly, tail, and feet. If your kids like to make it more colorful by imagination, feel free to do otherwise. 
  • For the core of the frame, use a rectangular piece of brown🟤 paper.
  • Position the beaver’s paws at the bottom and its tummy in the center of its structure, and then just stick them with the gum. Put the ears👂 in the proper place with glue.
  • You have to monitor the kids to put the nose and eyes 👀 in their proper places so that they can put together the other parts of the face properly. 
  • Add the tooth and sketch a mouth to complete the face. My kids and I gave the beaver a broad grin😁; you can also make them laugh or smile😸 as you like!
  • Then, you have to return to the body part. Using a black indicator, you have to paint crisscross patterns on the beaver’s tail.
  • Then, you have to use glue to fix the end of the tail to the trunk so that it seems that the tail is growing from the back. 
  • Once the beaver’s body is stuck to the paper bag and its face to the pleated flap, your handmade paper bag👜 beaver doll🎎 is done.
  • While playing with the kids, you can put your fingers within the paper bag and operate the beaver’s head with the fingertips within the flap. It’ll be a great toy🧸 for them. 

Beaver paper crown for classroom

This adorable beaver paper crown lets you turn your little champs into small beavers.


  • Masking or duct tape
  • Tacky or white glue
  • Oil Pastels or crayons in shades of brown, peach, and black.
  • Scissors
  • A Beaver Paper Crown Template


  • Firstly, observe the outlines provided on the template. Then, you have to carefully snip around the outer border of the brown frame and shape the beaver head with scissors✂. 
  • Let your kids do most of the activity, but your child will likely require help with trimming around the ears👂. A five-year-old, however, could easily clip off the entire template. Cut the brown box at the bottom.
  • To create a circle, you have to join the other brown🟤 part with some glue or white tape. Another thing you can do is to just staple a piece of elastic to make it match any child’s head. And lo! Your beaver crown👑 is ready to celebrate National Beaver Day.

Cardboard tube beaver craft

In addition to their teeth, beavers’ tails are quite helpful for swimming🏊 and serving as a means of balance when they’re on land.

You can create an amazing beaver by this craft’s instructions. Make sure the beaver has a great, big tail as well.


  • One toilet paper roll
  • Scissors
  • Single hole punch
  • Pencil
  • Sharpie marker
  • Glue
  • Cereal box
  • White scrap paper


  • Just sketch two arms and a tail that looks like a tick symbol with the black marker to design a beaver. 
  • The limbs and tail should then be able to pop out, so cut those out with the scissors, being cautious not to trim them off altogether! 
  • Usually, after cutting out a portion, I run over the black⚫ border a second time to smooth out any uneven cuts and bring attention to the details. 
  • Also, add features to the tail’s crisscross using the black pen⚫✒. 

These are some entertaining facts about beavers, just for fun!

Beaver information:

Although the beaver’s front teeth are always growing, its constant chewing on wood keeps them from becoming very large.

Underwater sight is an ability common to beavers!

Canada’s national animal is the beaver.

Beavers make the dwellings where they live. 

Camping scene shapes matching

Children may paint and print out the designs on these amusing little papers, then glue them to another design to create a story! 

Preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary school students can be made to practice cutting with scissors and matching designs. If you have a toddler or preschooler at home, he/she will surely love it❤! 

In addition, this serves as a fantastic foundation for sketching pictures. The initial step to being a budding artist is to recognize the “basic shapes” in an image!


  • printer
  • paper
  • scissors,
  • glue,
  • Template of beaver


  • You will need two different designs for every project, so download away a design of your preference. The black and white and colorful pictures🌆🌠 can be combined in whatever way you choose—the forms will still match up nicely.
  • Tracing the shapes, designs, and templates, trim off the images from the printed paper. 
  • Then, using the beaver paper patterns, you have to arrange the shapes and attach them.
  • Keep the model in the air for some time to dry the gum or glue. 

I did it in a simple manner with my kids. You can add colors to the image if the kids are into coloring and painting🎨. 

Beaver Canada Day wreath

Make this entertaining wreath with your children to commemorate Canada’s Beaver Day!


  • Ring of cardboard (empty cereal boxes work wonderfully).
  • Construction paper (red and white).
  • Scissors.
  • glue


  • Place two plates, one little and one big, on a piece of used paperboard.
  • Leftover food🍲 containers or discarded boxes📦 of food will be great. 
  • If you cut through the cardboard’s folds, it won’t disrupt the shapes. So you can cut through it with a pen knife🔪. 
  • Then, you have to attach a little cardboard strip and cut it to fit over any paperboard creases onto the reverse side of the ring.
  • By attaching this strip, the creases will be firmer, and therefore, it will strengthen the cardboard ring.
  • Cut construction paper into one 1/2-inch by 4-inch pieces.
  • Then you can ask your kids to apply glue to the pieces, coil them up, and make it appear like a paper📄 ring.
  • Attach the construction paper strips to the wreath using glue. We created a red🔴 and white⚪ design, but feel free to use any color scheme of your convenience or your kid’s choice. 
  • You can choose the preferred template from the internet and then download and print it. 
  • After coloring the blank printed shapes, cut off the design portions from the printed template.
  • Attach the head, paws, and maple leaf to the wreath using glue.

Finally, attach the beaver’s torso, tail, and two paws with glue to the wreath’s back, making it appear as though it is peaking over its head. And your beaver wreath is done! 


At just two years of age, my little daughter is just starting to explore these immersive crafts, and I’ve seen that the beaver operations have helped make my son more verbal and creative.
