Safari Sketches

Safari Sketches craft

Kids go on safari when they follow their animal instincts with art adventures. Put these booklets on your survival list.

    With Crayola Twistables Crayons, sketch jungle safari images on the front cover. You might choose animals, tree branches, and plants in the rain forest.

    Cover your work area with newspaper. Brush a thin coat of green Crayola Washable Kid's Paint over the cover to represent the jungle's green foliage. Watch the waxy crayon colors pop out of the jungle! Dry.
