- If your zoo animal cookies have gone stale, turn them into wearable art. Pop animal crackers in a 200º F oven for 10 minutes to dry them out. After letting them cool, paint the animal crackers, then seal the paint with lacquer or Mod Podge. After sealing, you can write on the zoo animal cookies with permanent marker or super glue pins, magnets, etc. to the backs. Stick them to your fridge, your little one's backpack or spice up a denim jacket.
- Want a simpler craft using animal crackers that your mini crafter can still eat? Help your kiddo make a "zoo" out of construction paper, pretzel sticks or pipe cleaners, construction paper or a shoebox, glue and of course—animal cracker snacks. Obviously, stay away from nibbling on the glue bits, but after the crafting is complete, encourage little ones to release the animals from the zoo and chow down.
