Kids are fascinated by farms and livestock but don’t always have the opportunity to experience that world first-hand.  With this second Pop-Out & Paint book, kids can create a farmyard of their own, complete with all their favorite animals!

POP-OUT & PAINT FARM ANIMALS features the same perforated-page format as POP-OUT & PAINT FARM ANIMALS (30,000 copies in print), with sturdy die-cut figures of barnyard favorites including cows, sheep, pigs, goats, ducks, a barn cat, and more.  The step-by-step photographic instructions are specifically designed for kids 8-12.

Using a few basic supplies—acrylic paints, craft clue, embroidery flodd, and yarn—kids will have hours of fun making paper wings for ducks and yarn beards for goats, as well as building a dairy barn and accessories like grain sacks, a hay rack, and an egg-collecting box.  Easy to make, the durable models can be painted on both sides, and the completed animals stand up for play or display.  The sturdy outline left in the book provides a handy stencil for making additional models, allowing kids to customize their barnyard.
