Animal Crafts 

The animal crafts pictured is an example of how each of these animals could look once they are made. 

They can be colored or just decorated with yarn. A wonderful way to teach kids about these amazing animals we share this planet with.

The Sea Creatures Craft Kits comes with everything shown in the picture. The yarn used in these kits is different from the yarn for the individual animals.

Each individual animal craft comes packaged with a wood animal, yarn, a small stick all packaged in a cotton bag. The yarn colors for each animal will match the pictures. 

These make great ornaments or you can also hang them from your child's room door handle. 

How to Make Animal Crafts:

1) Take all the pieces out of the bag.

2) If you are going to color the animal do this next before attaching the yarn. Colored pencils or markers not included.

3) Cut the yarn to the desired length. We cut each piece into 5-6" pieces depending on the animal. You can also use different sizes on each animal.

4) Layout the cut pieces next to the holes and decide how you want the colors to look on your animal craft. 

5) Fold the yarn in half and put the wood stick inside the loop and push it through the hole from the back to the front.

6) Take the 2 pieces of yarn hanging from the back and feed them through the loop you just pushed through and pull tight.

Perfect gift for a child!

My friend's 8-year-old loved the lion craft! She had so much fun coloring it and threading the yarn. I also got the back engraved with her name. She can't wait to hang it up in her room, and wants to do the other animals!
