  1. Cut the lowercase “k” from a piece of grey foam sheet. To make the letters go along with the uppercase letters we’ve done in the past, this letter was cut from a piece of foam that was about 4” x 5”.
  2. Cut ears, tail and face out of excess grey foam.
  3. Cut nose out of black foam or use a black Sharpie to add nose to face.
  4. Glue lowercase k onto the face of the koala (as pictured).  Add the ears, tail and nose (or draw nose).
  5. Glue on wiggly eyes.
  6. Cuddle with your tot!
