Craft Ideas for KidsOn this page is an adorable set of two Craft Ideas for Kids. The colorful and fun cut-outs of animals are for two stories. The first one is Ol’ Mr. Turtle and the Mischievous Minnow. The second story is The Musical Triumph of Mr. Thaddeus Toad.
The pictures and stories are from Ladies’ Home Journal magazines from the early 1900’s and were designed by Harrison Cady. Click on the title links above for a PDF copy of the stories, and click on the images to find free PDF files of the story characters that you can download and print.
You may want to print the figures on card stock to make them nice and sturdy. Cut carefully around the dotted lines on the tabs then fold them back to make each section stand on its own.
