So.. are you ready?! Let’s take a look at this set of 12 Zodiac Animals…

1. Year of the Rat Crafts (2008 – 2020 – 2032)

2020 is in fact the Year of the Rat! I don’t have too many RAT themed crafts to be honest.. though I do think many of our Mouse Crafts for kids are interchangable with rats.. just like these adorable and easy Mouse Corner Bookmarks.

2. Year of the Ox – 2009 – 2021 – 2033

Next up we have the Year of the Ox!! My son has made a Cow Corner Bookmark before (see the one peeping in the background!) and essentially they are the same craft. Though I decided to make it extra bull or Ox like by changing around the colours a little and giving our Ox bigger horns.
