Animal Jumble



This Animal Jumble game is easy to make and is guaranteed to have your children giggling as they come up with one strange looking creation after another!

To make Your Animal Jumble:

You are going to need some supplies before you can get the kids started on this project.  I recommend the following:

  • construction, butchers or white paper
  • colors, pencils, or markers
  • tape or glue
  • safety scissors

All of these supplies should be available at any decent department store, art and craft stores, officeworks (or other stationery store) or your local newsagent or even your supermarket.   I tend to keep these kinds of supplies on hand and not just for craft work with the kids!

Directions:

Using construction or white paper, ask each child to draw a different body part of an animal, but to have their animal be a secret.

For example, if you have four children, one can draw the head, another draw the body, another draw the tail, and another the legs. Let each child pick for themselves the animal they want to draw.

Tip:

Tip: Instead of sticking the animal parts on to the larger sheet of construction paper, just place them on it. That way, you can save the animal parts to use again - if you have your children make lots of different body parts, then they can make all sorts of weird and wonderful creatures!

When they are done, have them cut out their pieces (using safety scissors) and then put the animal together with tape or glue onto a larger piece of construction paper.

Finally, have fun coming up with a name for the animal...

A giraffe head, an alligator body, a bunny's legs, and a fox's tail could have a pretty interesting name! Let your kids imaginations run wild!

To make the activity even more interesting you can ask the kids to decorate their body part using wool, feathers, leaves, or glitter. 

Anything you have in your craft cupboard really.
