With 16 different animals and 4 easy face ideas for each, your little ones will have endless fun exploring their artistic side as they finish the picture. 

But that’s not all – there are 2 writing activities to enhance the learning experience.

For the younger ones, there’s a letter formation practice activity where you can trace the name of each animal. It’s perfect for kindergarteners and preschoolers who are learning to write. And if you teach 1st or 2nd grade, I’ve got you covered too! You can draw and write about the animal with the help of the writing prompts provided on a separate page.

This activity is not only fun, but it’s also a great addition to your distance learning package. It can be easily sent home with students during school closures, ensuring they continue to engage in educational activities even from home.

I used this last year during my virtual year and then again this year with my students in class. Directed drawings are loved in first grade and these were a huge hit! Thank you for making such an adorable resource that helped boost our spirits!

My students loved this resource.  It was wonderful seeing which faces they chose for the pictures and what they wrote for each one!  They can’t wait to do more of them.

~ Karen N.


My students keep these in their desk and can pull them out when they finish an assignment. They have loved working on the pictures.
