Free monkey pop up card template and monkey colouring page

We have an absolutely adorable craft for you today. It is a monkey pop up card, which is perfect for the Year of the Monkey, for Chinese New Year; it does after all, say “Happy New Year” on the front *bit of a giveaway that*

Just so as the card doesn’t get too lonely, we also have a colouring page as well, with another Monkey theme. Perfect for you to get the kids to colour in, perhaps while you are trying to sort out the card for them :-D.

The card is simple to create, as you can see from the template:

A simple pop up card for Chinese New Year, or for any time, to celebrate the year of the Monkey or just for your Monkey!

All you need to do is:

  1. Fold the printable in half, along the line as shown, so that the monkey is cut in half (lengthways)
  2. Cut down the mouth with some scissors until you reach the point of the triangle
  3. Score, or fold,  along the dotted line around his mouth, on both sides creating a triangle
  4. Open out the card now, and fold the monkey the other way (widthways)
  5. Make sure the mouth opens, you can of course colour it in behind the mouth, and that the folds are secure enough for the mouth to open whenever the card is opened too.

All done! Well, except that you need to colour everything else in of course.

Gorgeous Chinese New Year card, complete with a little Monkey for a Monkey. Perfect for this year in the Year of the Monkey
