We love Vanessa and are so excited to have her participate in our summer series. She is one clever lady! We are loving these Animal Silhouette Free Files and Project Ideas! This is such a fun way to kick off our ZOO Animal Week!

I’m so excited to be participating in Crafting Chick’s Mother Hen’s Summer Survival Guide again this year! For me and my boys, nothing says “summer” more than long visits to our local zoo. Because we go so often, I’m always on the look out for ways to make our zoo trips interesting and new so I created these Animal Silhouette Free Files to make t-shirts and sketch pads for my kids. Hope you all enjoy them too!

6 Free Files!

The way I’m planning on using these Animal Silhouette Free Files is that each child will get to pick out the animal they feel represents them the most the week before a zoo trip. Then we’ll spend the next few days researching more about that animal, making crafts, and watching educational videos. I’ll use the free files to make a matching t-shirts and sketch books so that they have something new and exciting to take with us to the zoo. I’ll definitely be using my handy Silhouette Cutting Machine and materials from Expressions Vinyl!

Animal Silhouette Free File - BookSuper Sketch Book

We’ve been bringing sketch books and pens to the zoo for years now but this is the first time they’ll have personalized books. My boys are crazy about using gel pens on these inexpensive black blank books right now! Usually we focus on a specific exhibit or section of the zoo instead of trying to see the whole thing. We’ve sat in the aviary drawing for hours before!

While we’ve taken sketch books to the zoo in the past, we’ve never had coordinating t-shirts! We’ve been talking with our boys about their different personalities and strengths lately so having them take pride in the t-shirts they choose is perfectly timed. I love the idea of a child knowing they’re as fierce as a lion or as free as a bird!
