We made this a few weeks ago, before Christmas, and I forgot to post it! We made a zoo last year around this time and it went over so well. The kids had fun playing with it. So, I thought we would make another one and see how it goes! I had been saving Kleenex boxes to use for our zoo this time. I thought they would make excellent cages! With a hole punch and some pipe cleaners, they turned out pretty good!
We got out the foam stickers and started decorating the “cages”. We also gave all the animals we have a new home!
And what is a zoo without an aquarium! I had found this wooden bowl at Goodwill and figured I would use it sometime. It made the perfect aquarium! We added blue puff balls as the water!
We have quite a few animal figurines at our house. These worked out perfect and the kids had a great time playing! Such a cheap, fun activity to do! Let’s the kids be creative and use their imagination!
And what is a zoo without visitors! I had bought a people foam kit at Michael's. This has come in very handy with many things we have done! Josie made these fun little people! Jayden also used a couple as the zoo keepers!
What a good way to spend a cold winter day!
