Paper Animals in Action! by Rob Ives is a charming collection of twelve easy-to-assemble paper animals that actually move! Each animal is paired with a clothespin, craft glue and other household items, to create animated creatures.
The instructions are easy to follow and the animal illustrations are whimsical. Among the twelve are a flying pig, a growling bear, a surprised penguin, and the model I chose to create…a talking triceratops.
With a little patience and detail scissors and a craft knife, I cut out each piece and followed the instructions for folding and glueing. In no time at all I had my talking triceratops ready to talk.
I really enjoyed creating my Talking Triceratops and think you and your family will enjoy creating any of the cute animals in this collection.
