Our August Virtual Book Club for Kids featured author is Aliki! We love several books by Aliki and had a hard time choosing what book to spotlight this month.
Since we did a Zoo themed week recently we decided to spotlight the book My Visit to the Zoo by Aliki and share some of our favorite zoo themed book crafts and activities with you!
My Visit to the Zoo by Aliki is a book filled with lots of information! This was perfect for my older son because he loves to learn facts and new information. My toddler and preschooler also enjoyed the book because they thought the pictures were really cool! Instead of reading the lengthy text to them I used my own words to tell them the story based on the pictures.
In addition to reading this book and several other favorite zoo books, we did some zoo themed crafts and activities!
Below you'll find 9 of our favorite activities plus 3 more activities that we collected from some fabulous blogs that we love! Click on the links to be directed to the full tutorials.
Here are three other awesome zoo crafts that we loved from some of our blogging friends...
- Cupcake Liner Lion Craft from I Heart Crafty Things
- Paper Plate Birds from Happy Hooligans
- Cardboard tube snakes by Crafts by Amanda
