Make a koala mask

Celebrate Save the Koala Day

Activity time: 30 minutes

Koalas face threats to their habitat from extreme weather events and tree clearing. Conservationists, researchers, volunteers and community experts care for koalas and their habitat. We can do our part to care for koalas by learning more about them and caring for the environment they live in.  

Let’s make a mask to celebrate koalas.  

You’ll need:  

  • cardboard box (tip: you can use the inside of a recycled cereal box)
  • black markers, crayons or pencils   
  • scissors   
  • sticky tape or glue   
  • cotton balls (if you don’t have any, you can use white paper, tissues or scrunched up paper towel) 
  • string or ribbon.
