Today’s letter in the A-Z of Animals Series is the letter M. M for Monkey!
We made this cute monkey puppet from pipecleaners, so easy, but so cute!
The most common monkey we get here in South Africa is the vervet monkey. These monkeys are not brown though, but a blue-ish grey and in my language we all them “blouapie”, which translates directly to blue monkey. The vervet monkeys are very cheeky and would steal you food from your house(in certain parts of the country), just like that!
Today’s monkey is a brown cutie made from pipecleaners.
I used a half for the legs, half for the arms and a whole one for the body plus tail. I used a ready made monkey face, but you can make your own from felt, craft foam or cardboard.
