African animal stencil pictures

This week we are doing a bunch of activities around African animals.  We have a small African world set up in the one corner of our lounge and the kids have been enjoying it, although I must admit my son seems to be loving the idea of introducing his T-Rex into the African world.  hmm

To start out African week I thought we would do an art project.  I printed off these great FREE stencils from trusty Twinkl and cut them out on some card.  (Safari animal templates)

We used some blue tack to stick the stencils onto some paper and then the kids coloured around and over the stencils with their oil pastels.
