The idea is to make things easy on parents, teachers, and homeschoolers! So just dye lots of different types of pasta noodles (here is how to dye pasta) and set out the colored pasta with these free animal printable to get kids started. Kids will just complete the picture.

The animal worksheets for preschoolers are in black and white so kids can use crayons, markers, or colored pencils to finish the picture as well. We complete our lion craft with orange and yellow markesr and bowtie pasta.

hedgehog craft

After colouring in the hedge hog face and nose, we used brown rotini noodles to finish the cute little hedgehog craft.

Animal Crafts for Kids

While we did our fish craft with markers and colored elbow pasta, there are so many options! You can use paint, playdough, dot markers, circle stickers, etc. I love open ended projects that allow kids to dream up new and innovative ways to create something beautiful!

turtle craft

Zoo Animal Crafts

My son’s favorite animal is a turtle so I had to include not one, but two different turtle templates to choose from. We used green dyed pasta to complete the turtle shell and markers to color in the adorable happy turtle. This turtle craft is so cute!

snake craft

Zoo Craft Animals

Our cute snake craft we made out of blue rotini noodles. This is such a simple project so even young 2 and 3 years olds can participate. I suggested they make the snake curl up.
