Hit up your local craft store to find animal-shaped cutouts and then craft away! 


  • wooden animal-shaped cutouts (available at craft stores)
  • Popsicle sticks or chopsticks
  • tacky glue and glitter glue
  • paint

1. GLUE a wooden animal shape to the top of a Popsicle stick or chopstick and allow to dry. 

2. PAINT the animal shape and add details, such as eyes and scales,using the glitter glue. Allow to  dry.  

Note: These funny folks can decorate your house plants-just stick them in the soil!
