This activity for 3-9 year-olds has one of the best hassle to enjoyment ratios of any craft I know. It's something that my mother and sister put together years ago and has been sending kids into fits of giggles ever since.
After printing out the sheets of animals, all that's left to do is to:
1. Cut each sheet down the middle,
2. Stack the half sheets together, carefully aligning the vertical lines,
3. Staple along the top,
4. Let the kids color their animals,
5. Cut through the vertical lines up to the staples.
From there the kids can have lots of creative fun pulling up the flaps to make animal conglomerates (and then of course naming them). This post is part of Works for Me Wednesday!
