Rainy-day zoo craft

We were planning a trip to the zoo this weekend, but the torrential downpour and hurricane-force winds put those plans on hold. So we stayed home and made our own!

paper animals, kids craft, zoo craftThese construction paper animals are super easy to make. Construction paper folded in two and cut out for the legs and body. Two slits cut in the front and back of the body for the head and tail to fit in. Crayons, googly eyes, pom-poms, feathers and glue to decorate the animals. We used popsicle sticks and play clay to help support them on their base. And that's it!

A little imagination and voila! We have a tiger, a panther, a giraffe, a zebra, an elephant, a flamingo and a fish.

Our very own zoo!
