If you have sloth loving children, they’ll love creating this fun sloth craft for kids. Simply print out the sloth craft template and follow the directions below to create a fun sloth critter.

Paste your sloth to the front of a card, put it in a frame to decorate your room, or display it on the refrigerator.

Sloth Craft for Kids


  • Colored paper (construction paper or card stock works well)
  • Craft glue
  • Sharpie
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Template


Choose brown, cream, pink, black and 2 different shades of grey colored craft papers. Trace the body pattern on light grey paper and the 2 separate legs on dark grey paper. Trace the circle (face) on cream paper, the paws on black paper, the 2 small circles on pink paper and the remaining patterns (eye patch) on brown paper. Cut out the traced patterns.

Glue the paws at the end of all four legs as pictured below.

Next attach the two separate legs behind the connected legs, as pictured below.

Glue the pink circles and the 2 brown eye patches on the sloth’s face (round cream cutout). 

Glue the cream circle in the middle of the grey head pattern. 

Glue the head pattern piece on the front of the sloth’s body. Use a black sharpie to draw the eyes, nose and the mouth of the paper sloth. 

That’s it! So cute isn’t it?
