Let your child's imagination run wild and transform an ordinary paper plate into an exotic animal or their favorite pet! Then continue the fun by role playing with their new masks!

Materials Needed:  

    Paper Plate (a piece of paper can be the alternative)
    Paint or Markers
    Glue or tape
    Scissors
    Misc Supplies (wiggle eyes, felt, pipe cleaners, sequins, etc)


Has your child been to the zoo? Which animal was their favorite?

the boys love playing with paperplates and crafts, they usually make superheros or robots though

These are awesome! Will be doing this for sure, I just need to get some paint as ours isn't very good - cheaper stuff. We haven't been to the zoo in a long time, I'm not sure what their favorites are. I'll make a point to ask them though.

Good idea. Maybe we will do it this weekend since it is supposed to snow.

Our zoo is a little unorthodox as it is mostly animals that were injuredor were orphaned at a really young age. My youngest loves the sea otters because of the viewing glass where he can watch them underwater. My older ones all seem to love the tigers.

We'll have to use paper--I don't buy paper plates any more. Cute idea!

 This is perfect!  Friday after school is 'craft' day for us! 

We took our oldest to the zoo when she was about 20 months....who knows what her favorite was then.
