Earlier in the day we had enjoyed a wander at the zoo--what fun to come home and see which of our favorites we could make!

How We Did It

One of our favorite parts of our zoo is the polar bear... we must have one! And a crocodile! With teeth!

To add more dimension to the animals, we cut slits at the top of the fold, and added in pieces: ears... eyes...and a horn for the rhino.
