Animal ABC Book Craft

An animal ABC book makes a great gift -- it's like giving someone a trip to the zoo. Make this animal craft for a friend, or keep one for yourself as a great chronicle of a trip to the zoo.

What You'll Need:

  • Notebook
  • Pen or pencil
  • Camera (optional)
  • Old magazines
  • Scissors
  • Markers

How to make an animal ABC book craft:An ABC book is a book that has one sentence or one page for each letter of the alphabet. A visit to the zoo makes a great topic for an ABC book. The next time you go to the zoo, take a notebook with you. Write down the name of each animal you see. Also write down one interesting fact about each animal. Draw a sketch or bring a camera and take pictures of the animals, too.When you get back home, make your ABC book. For each letter, think of an animal that starts with that letter. Put its picture on the page. If you didn't take photos or draw pictures, you can cut pictures out of old magazines.Then write the animal's name and a fact about the animal. For example, if you saw an aardvark, you might write: The name "aardvark" means "earth pig." If you come to a letter that you don't have an animal for, think of an object at the zoo that begins with that letter. For "H," you could write about the hot dog you had for lunch. Try to think of an animal or a word for every letter of the alphabet. When you're done, you'll have a book about the zoo, from A to Z.For more fun activities and crafts, check out:
