Panda Day!

National Panda Day is celebrated every year on March 16th and here are a few amusing facts from the World Wildlife Fund to honour the fluffy animals on their special day.

  • Pandas are born weighing less than a pound, but grow to be between 200 and 300 pounds as adults.

  • They can eat for up to fourteen hours every day!

  • Pandas are bears, and instead of meat, bamboo is their primary source of nutrition.


Why not try making this adorable panda themed craft with your little one to celebrate Panda Day?


Just a paper plate, googly eyes, and black construction paper.


Cut out the ovals for the eyes and the shapes for the nose and ears, then glue them all down.


Draw on a mouth and you’re done!
