Really Wild Adventurous Animal Arting… and a Wild GiveAway…

Who doesn’t like some amazing animal antics… here we go… this isn’t anything new, but the results are always spectacular… Scratch art is one of our quickest and easiest arty project that you can do again and again on any theme and everyone always enjoys it… Especially our youngest artist, who can think of nothing better than smothering anything in black paint!!!


This is number five in our series of se7en + 1 fabulous Crafty book Giveaways… Read on, read on…

This book, Wild Adventures by Michaela Strachan was given to us by PanMacmillan South Africa for review… and it is fabulous fun!!! A poetry book, full of fun rhymes, facts and funny, beautiful photographs and cartoons… it has the feel of a “good place to linger” and learn more about the wild world of animals without making any effort!!! We really enjoyed it!!!

  1. Number One usually doesn’t win but anyway my kids and I would love this book. We have been lucky enough to see loads of wild animals but I still want to see the beloved and elusive Leopard close up!!

  2. We see lots of animals in the wildlife park, but I would really love to see a polar bear.

  3. Hmmm, my favourite wild animal is an elephant and it’s much better seeing them in the wild than cooped up in a zoo.
