Easy, fun way to make animals from paper tubes. Jun 12, 2008
This book contains the patterns and instructions to make 36 animals using the tubes of the tissue paper. Animals are really easy to make, and if you use them with older kids, they shouldn't take more than 20 minutes to assemble (especially if you provide them with the patterns photocopied on color paper). For each animal, it contains a short poem and a writing prompt to encourage kids to develop their writing skills.
Some of the animals are really cute like the beaver, the raccoon, the koala, the cow, the pig and the lion. Others are a little rough, like the panda (a very small head), the mouse (very long legs), the bear (very thin arms and legs). However, overall, you will obtain very nice products and kids will love them. They are perfect to use as puppets, to teach about animals, to have kids sort the animals into types, to discuss habitats, to give as treats for kids, and much more. Your imagination is the limit.
Good idea for tissue tubes! Can be used at school/home! Apr 30, 2000
I had seen a few pages of this book from other teachers at my school. I was very happy to be able to find it here & ordered my own copy! This book has a variety of animals which can be colored in, cut, and then attached to toilet tissue rolls. Save those tissue rolls & recycle! This book is a great value and would make a very nice gift for your child's teacher.
