I think it's safe to say that every child loves to take a trip to the zoo to see all their favorite zoo animals. I ™ve been looking around and found so many fun zoo animal crafts that I couldn't wait to share them with you! What a great way to discuss all the animals you saw during your visit, a fun way to talk about each one and help them learn more as they create.
Zoo Animal Crafts
Some zoo animals, such as penguins and polar bears, have had lots and lots of craft projects modeled after them. Other animals were not as easy to find! To save you from searching them out yourself, here's a list of 25 fun zoo animal crafts (and crafty food too) that you and your kids can create.
