My daughters and I had a lot of fun creating this kangaroo flower pot craft using a pattern we found on a great site called Danielle’s Place. One of our readers can even win a subscription to Danielle’s place! Some craft patterns, like the kangaroo below, can be downloaded for free, but subscribers get full access to these wonderful craft patterns and tutorials.
You can find the complete directions and patterns for this craft on Danielle’s Place of Crafts and Activities. Go directly to the Kangaroo Crafts Page.
