Animal Arts and Crafts for Kids: Animal arts and crafts are the perfect blend for your animal-loving kiddos! Join Nana as she helps you and your children explore their favorite creatures!

Do your kids love animals? Did you know that they can create their own with chalk pastels? You’ll need a starter set of chalk pastels and Nana’s video art lessons to get started!

We turned our video art lessons into a chalk pastel animal teatime with the children’s favorite tea, cupcakes, Swedish fish, and gummy worms! We each picked an animal for us to create together. My daughter chose a kitten. She named her creation Walter! My son chose a puppy, and I chose a baby seal. We had loads of laughs and yummy treats throughout our creative afternoon. One of my favorite parts of chalk pastel teatime is hearing the laughter that ensues as we try our best to smear and blend our colors. It can get a bit messy, so keep a damp paper towel nearby.

But don’t think that Nana only has baby animals to draw! Oh no! She has a plethora of the animal kingdom to choose from! So much, in fact, you may have trouble choosing which ones to start with. But I always recommend starting with your children’s favorites!
