This little DIY would be good for a school lesson on habitats, a birthday party craft, a rainy day activity, or something fun to do on a vacation to learn about the local wildlife.  It’s great for boys and girls and their level of involvement is perfect for a kid-friendly DIY.

You’ll need some:

papier mache boxes (I bought mine at Michael’s–they come in a variety of shapes), magazine pages that represent a variety of outdoor landscapes (kids can hunt for these), scissors, markers, some good glue, and little plastic animals that match the habitats that you’ve found in the magazine pages

Trace your box onto the magazine page.

Cut it out and make sure it fits snugly into the box.  Remove it and spread an even layer of glue along the back of the box.

Cover the feet of your animals with glue and hold them firmly in place inside their box.

Have fun with these!  They’re so easy you could whip up a whole menagerie in no time!
