Orangutan Printable Craft


Meet Rango, our sweet baby orangutan craft! Lorelai named him Rango after she was finished gluing him together. She was so pleased that I made a baby and not an adult. I’ll have to make more infants in the future – she really was pleased! I did most of the cutting on this one (as she was cutting another). I made the outline a curvy and rigid to show the hair, so it was a little too complicated for her to cut. I also didn’t include the vine- you can easily make one with some of the scraps from the paper! Print below!!
