Creation Animal Activity Using the Animal Wheel Craft
Completed Animal Wheel Craft (one craft for each group of four children)

Prep: Cut one 2-3" circle (or square) of each color to match the color of the the circles on your completed craft.

Activity: Have children sit in groups of four. Give the completed craft and the dice to one child. Give the circles to the other three children to hold.

How to Do the Activity: The child with the dice rolls the dice, then moves the dial and counts the animals until he/she gets to the number on the dice. Then she says a color that one of the children in the group is holding. The teacher reads the question in that color (on the craft). For example, if the child says yellow, you read, "What sound does that animal make?". The child with that color answers the question. The child continues saying the other colors one at a time, letting the child who is holding that color answer the question. Then the children each pass what they are holding to the lef, and you continue on in the same way until all of the children have had a chance to throw the dice and turn the wheel.

Creation Game Using the Extra Animal Stickers - Animal Tic Tac Toe
Supplies Needed:

Prep: Cut out the Extra Animal stickers left over from the Animal Wheel craft pages. On a bland sheet of paper, using a ruler, draw a Tic-tac-toe game card frame (big enough to fit an animal sticker in each square). Draw it so that you will have three rows and three columns side by side. Keep one set of animals for the leader to hold up. Glue an animal sticker in each square, making each card different, placing the animals on different places on the game cards. Cut squares of the same size out of construction paper, enough to cover all of the squares on the game cards.

How to Play Animal Tic Tac Toe: Give each child one game card and nine construction paper squares. To play, hold up the animal stickers, one after the other. If the child has that animal on their game card, they cover it with a blank square of construction paper. When they get three in a row covered (either horizontally, vertically or diagonally) they hold up their hand. They win that round and get a prize. You can continue on in the same way holding up animals one at a time and letting the children continue covering the same game cards until the next person gets three in a row, and so on. Make sure you have enough prizes on hand to give some to the children who didn't win. Have adults or teens assisting young children.

Quick Tips forEasy Folding and Cutting - Its easy to remember how to fold and cut by following these quick tips:

Dotted Lines - Pull the dotted lines towards you as you fold them.

Dashed Lines - Poke the dashed lines away from you as you fold them.

Solid Gray Lines- are for cutting

Tabs - Tabs fold back to go behind the picture.

Craft Supplies - Suggestions and Tips (I receive no compensation for these craft supply suggestoins).

Craft knife or Utility knife - These are usually found at any craft store or large department store. I suggest using one with a retractable blade or snap-off blade. Read all safety instructions

Glue sticks (Extra strength) - School glue does not work very well for pop-ups, as it is too wet and will make the pages bumpy when it dries (unless its the stick type of school glue). Most regular glue sticks don't stick well enough for pop-ups. You'll need an extra-strength or school glue type. Here are two that I have found that work well. Other brands of extra strength glue sticks may also work well.

Elmer's All Purpose Glue Stick

Elmer's Washable School Glue Stick - Disappearing Purple

Cardstock - Cardstock is heavier, sturdier paper used to make cards. You can get it at any large department store or office supply store. Also, Amazon has several choices. You will need white for these pop-ups.

Self-healing Cutting Mat - These are plastic cutting mats that protect furniture.You can find them in craft stores or online.

Restickable or Repositionable Glue Sticks

Scotch and Elmer's brands both make various types of restickable or repositionable glue sticks. Most are non-toxic. You can also use regular glue to make permanent stickers as well.
