(Video) Crafting Animals at High Speed

Here’s a video of my super-speedy hands making the examples for this game:

Instructions:

1. Download the Free Printable from the link at the bottom of this page (it comes in English and Spanish)

2. Complete each animal in a crafty way by playing with your creativity and any random materials that you find around.

Unleash your creativity!

Experiment with odd materials that don’t look like art supplies at all. That brings a richer experience for the player because it gives more satisfaction to them knowing they “discovered” a new way of using something. Who doesn’t love that feeling?

► How to use this resource for distance learning

Send one “animal challenge” per week (or day, depending on how you are doing your online sessions). The students can print the template at home (or parents can help “copy” the template if they don’t have access to a printer) and use whatever resources they have around their home to craft their animal, then take a picture and share it with the group in the platform that you are using to deliver your lessons (Zoom, Google Classroom, etc.)

I have tried this with my preschool students and it is wonderful seeing how each child comes up with something completely different that reflects their personality.

Idea twists:

Recycling Mode: Play an eco-friendly version of this game by using mostly materials that would otherwise be thrown away (clean trash).

Animal Breeds: Print many copies of the same animal and craft them in different breeds.

Teaching Art Styles: Ask the kids to complete each animal using techniques related to different art movements like Impressionism, Minimalism, and my absolute favorite, Surrealism.
