Bring the Zoo to

by Lillian Csernica

DIYZooSummer is that wonderful time of year when people get out into the sunshine. A favorite destination is the zoo. There’s nothing like seeing a tiger roar in person or watching a hippopotamus enjoying a swim. Here’s a way to make it possible to visit the zoo every day, and the zoo can be completely different every time.

Materials:
A large pad of white paper, the type sold for finger painting.
Painter’s tape
Waxed paper
Craft sticks
Toothpicks
Pipe cleaners
Colored markers
Crayons
Play-Doh or its off-brand equivalent
Cookie cutters shaped like animals
Stickers (animals, food, plants and flowers, balloons, etc.)

This list can be expanded to include whatever you and your fellow zoo builders want to use. A trip to the dollar store can provide everything you need for less than ten dollars.

Time: 30 minutes for the basic zoo. You can add as many details as you like!
