As a kid, I had fun learning how to sew. I wish I’d have had a cute animal craft like this adorable felt owl! Felt can be used to make lots of different animal crafts, and there doesn’t even have to be sewing involved if it isn’t your thing. Use fabric glue, or help the kids put their crafts together with a hot glue gun.
Animal face masks are double the fun for kids. First, they have fun crafting their own mask out of construction paper, markers, or paint. After the mask is complete, the fun continues through make-believe play. No wonder masks might be the most fun animal craft for kids!
