Inspire kids to get creative with this fun animal fashion show, plus more zoo themed learning fun for kids.
I love trying out new and exciting crafting materials, but when it comes to raising creative kids, there’s something to be said for limiting craft materials, at least some of the time! We packed up at least half of our belongings when we put our house on the market, including most of my craft supplies. I really missed all those crafty materials, but having nothing but tape, paper, scissors, and pens really brought out the creativity in my kids! This animal fashion show just made me laugh!
These little animals are tiny – the giraffe and zebra came from our beloved Safari Ltd Zoo Babies Toob. I think the rhinoceros and deer may have been mine as a kid. Given the small scale, I was particularly impressed by the zebra’s headband.
Besides the fun factor, this activity is a great way for kids to practice fine motor skills and to work on recognizing and naming colors.
