Zoo Inspired Crafts

This time of year we love to make several field trips to the local zoo, and get lots of mileage out of our annual family pass! Here are some zoo-inspired crafts to try:

If you’re lucky enough to have a fun encounter with a peacock…

… here’s an easy peacock craft using color-coding labels!

Maybe your zoo has penguins??

Here’s a silly penguin craft using foot prints!!

If your zoo has owls….

… then you absolutely must make these adorable owls from cardboard tubes!!

Lastly, one of our favorite exhibits at our zoo is the Lorikeets!!

… and this colorful bird craft is made from painted coffee filters, and looks so pretty on display in a window!

Have fun!!
