Simple kids crafts have a way of taking a more complicated task and turning it into a fun activity. While crafting can take time and energy, this Styrofoam Koalas DIY Kids Craft is sure to put a smile on your favorite little one's face. In fact, they'll be eager to turn off the television and power down the computer screen so they can work on this quick and easy craft project. If you're looking for craft projects for kids to make in an afternoon, this is the project. Start with a plan Styrofoam ball and add eyes, ears and a smiling mouth. Make sure to color the Styrofoam gray so it looks like a real-life koala bear. They can display their creation on their desk or dresser.

Time to CompleteOne hour

Materials List

  • Styrofoam ball
  • Grey paint
  • Grey felt
  • Black felt
  • Googly Eyes
  • Aleene's Tacky Glue from I Love to Create

These make fun pencil toppers. Simply use a dowel to twist a hole in the bottom before painting. When the koala is done and everything has dried, slide it onto a pencil!


  1. Paint the styrofoam ball grey by pouncing paint onto it.

  2. While the paint is drying, cut out an oval nose and a smile from black felt. Cut a pair of ears from grey felt.

  3. When the foam ball is dry, use tacky glue to attach the facial features.

  4. Glue the ears in place. Hold them for 2-3 minutes so that they don't slump under their own weight.
