So, after you have chosen the theme, you have to draw a picture and cut out parts of the paper. Your child can do it himself. My son is only 3 years old, he perfectly cuts with scissors, but if he starts to cut small parts, the craft will not be similar to the animal))) So I drew and cut by myself. Tails, feet, ears of animals were separate parts and Timmy chose and put them together by himself.
There is all that you need in the photo – colored paper, cardboard, scissors, markers, and glue, of course.
