Roll up to the zoo and make a colorful menagerie of charming cardboard animals, a great way to make good use of all the cardboard and egg cartons you have in your recycling!
First, take yourself on Safari and make a whole pride of lions from cardboard tubes, a pretty zebra, a giraffe, a rhino, and a delightfully jaunty flamingo. Move on to the Jungle, where there is a grinning crocodile, and a chimpanzee and an orangutan swinging through the trees. In the Snow there is a delightful family of penguins made of egg cartons, a seal, a walrus, and a smiling polar bear. You can hear the Aviary a long way away, with chattering parrots, lovebirds, and even a bald eagle perching on a rock. Finally, spot the elusive manta and stingrays in the Aquarium, where they are joined by a jolly dolphin, a jellyfish, an octopus, and many other interesting sea creatures. In the last chapter, you will learn how to make all the enclosures and scenery so your cardboard critters have a home. There are also instructions for making trees, rocks, icebergs, grass, and flowers, so you can really set the scene. Using materials that you might otherwise discard, clear step-by-step instructions, and a handy hints and tips section, you will soon have your very own cardboard zoo!
