It takes just minutes to craft these craft replicas of native Australian animals - the perfect craft activity to celebrate Australia day! We'll show you how to whip up a duck-billed platypus, but you can use the same technique to craft a variety of adorable Aussie critters.

Step

Step 1:

Prepare your craft materials. For a platypus we will need a yellow BILL, brown TAIL, two GOOGLY EYES, two black FEET and two black PAWS along with one LARGE and SMALL POM POM.
Step

Step 2:

Glue the two FEET on to the bottom of the LARGE POM POM.
Step

Step 3:

Glue the TAIL and the PAWS to the LARGE POM POM to finish the platypus' body.
Step

Step 4:

Draw two little nostrils on the platypus' BILL then glue it onto the SMALL POM POM. Glue the two GOOGLY EYES just above the BILL to finish the critter's head.

Step 5:

Now it's as simple as gluing the head to the body, and you've got yourself one adorable little Australian native.
