This was a super easy craft that ended up being a hit with my 3-year-old and 5-year-old. It is so simple that you don't even need a step-by-step tutorial. But I will lay out what we did!
1. Go and send your kids out to find some sticks. I thought this was going to be a great adventure with my 2 kids going out into the yard searching for sticks, giving me some time to set up the craft. But, what it ended up being was: my kids walked out side the door and yelled "I don't see any sticks" and came back in side. I was all "You didn't look, go try again" and the same thing happened. So, I ended up going out into the yard and finding the sticks (which were like 10 feet from the door and the kids could have totally found them if they would have just looked!)
2. Draw the the body parts of the animals like the head and the body.
3. use glue to glue the sticks on for the legs, neck, wings, tail, etc. I used hot glue because we were impatient.
Here are the animals we made:
And we had lots more ideas like dinosaurs, or an octopus.
