"HP not only helps DreamWorks artists bring creative ideas to life, they help audiences bring the Kung Fu Panda experience home with them through these projects and activities. Now, the fun doesn’t have to stop in the theater."

- Anne Globe, Head of Worldwide Marketing and Consumer Products, DreamWorks Animation

When it comes to bringing stories and characters to life, DreamWorks Animation earns a black belt.

In Kung Fu Panda, opening June 6th, the talents of DreamWorks artists meet the traditions of martial arts – creating a visually advanced film that kicks the entire entertainment experience up a notch.

And, thanks to some printable projects, online and on-site store activities, the Kung Fu fun doesn’t have to end when the movie’s over.

Master Kung Fu crafts

The HP Activity Center makes it easy to become a crafts master! So, get your paws on these Kung Fu Panda- and Asian-inspired crafts!

Throw a panda party! Hang festive Kung Fu Panda Lanterns or Wall Masks and make the Pagoda Diorama your centerpiece.

Don’t grapple with keeping the kids busy. Have them print and fold Cootie Catchers (paper fortune tellers), or make Stick Puppets and Temporary Tattoos. Then, move up the ranks to 3-D Paper Characters of Po and friends. Wrap it all up in a gift or favor with a colorful Take Out Gift Box.
Fight boredom any day! Print and make Pop-Up Cards or Kung Fu Fun Pages of games, crafts and activities. Print Kung Fu styled Embroidery Templates to sew onto a pillow. Or send the kids to school with embroidered patches on shirts and jackets. Print a Shrinkable Backpack Tag or send a Lunchbox Note to a loved one.
