I don’t know about you, but the first thing that pops into my head is monkeys swinging from vines in the rainforest, leaving chaos in their wake.  The resident mischief-maker of the rainforests.

Kids love doing animal crafts. My kids love anything animal so any animal paper craft is always a hit.

My boys definitely like to put their own special marks on their crafts by using unexpected colors or gluing the parts on in fun ways. That what’s great about crafts, your kids get to enjoy doing them however they want. There is no wrong way to make a paper craft.

The great thing is there is no long list of supplies to buy and no high piles of stuff to clean up afterwards. So go wild with this cute monkey craft.
