Crafts for Kids Who Are Learning about Farm Animals
From the Series Crafts for Kids Who Are Learning about...
In typical Kathy Ross style, simple but clever projects bring cows and pigs and chickens and horses and goats and even the farmer himself to life. Young ones will get great satisfaction from being able to transform ordinary household items such as yogurt cups, paper towel tubes, or pipe cleaners into animal-based projects such as a Turkey Corsage, a Goosey Gander Pin, a Thimble Field Mouse, a Horse Magnet, or a Cow Tissue Dispenser. E-i-e-i-o!
