Another addition to our African Savannah animal list is this Leopard. This big cat has always been one of Lorelai’s favorites. When she was younger, she crafted these baby big cats (make one a leopard!) and was excited to do this adult version. She had fun with the spots and got quite creative in a few areas. Instead of using a marker to draw the spots, I was thinking that bubble wrap would also be fun – just dip the bubble-side into some black paint and gently press around the leopard. Grab your copy of the printable below, and don’t forget to check out the fun facts at the bottom of this post. Enjoy! (NOTE: this template could be used for almost any big cat – just paint it differently and you’ll have a different cat!)
