World Book Day: 6 Zoo Books & a TP Roll Craft

| February 19, 2014 | 3 Comments

World Books Day - Zoo Books and Craft IdeaOur love relationship with Toilet Paper Rolls continue. We have always been a fan of TP Rolls and have made many many things from them (check out our whole Loo Roll Category for more!!). They free, versatile and environmentally friendly. And great for kids who like to make more and more and more and more. They feature prominently in my book Red Ted Art, Cute and Easy Crafts for Kids

When the book first came out… both my children got a copy. Red Ted wandered off for a good browse. “Mummy, can we make this?” I heard him utter. I said “But we have made it already?”. He says “I want to make it again”…. so the book features this Loo Roll Zoo:

I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to revisit some of our “Zoo Books”.. the kids adore looking at animals and discussing their antics. Some of our books are more “factual” – like our Zoo-Ology book  – whch is a big oversized booked, brimming with animals and animal names, plus some facts at the back. The kids love studying it for ours. Others are fun, like Good Night, Gorilla. If your children love animals and Zoo related books, then this also makes a great craft for World Book Day – bring out your favourite Zoo book and get crafty (I know my kids adored Dear Zoo, when they were little)…….

We make some more – we make a Tiger… and then Red Ted runs off and creates his very own characters:

Loo Roll Zoo

He creates his own TP Roll Leopard, his own TP Roll Bear and his very own TP Roll Zoo Keeper.

I have to say, I was VERY proud of him.

And also, it is JUST what the book is all about – see something, be inspired, create your own!

I love that these make a great addition to any World Book Day celebrations. So enjoy. Here are some of our favourite Zoo books.

    Oh I do love a good book inspired toilet roll holder craft – we were thinking of doing the 3 little pigs.
