Step 2: Make your koala bear

You are now ready to start making the koala bear craft. Take the pink inner earpieces and glue them inside the ears. Then, grab both paws and glue them to the koala bear's feet. Continue by gluing both eyes on the koala's face. 

Alternative suggestion: You could use googly eyes instead of paper eyes for your koala bear

Now give your koala a 3D effect by gluing the arms on the shoulders.
