What does the Panda say?

A few craft supplies, pizza and my pregnant sister-in-law = a very fun and creative night! We created some awesome things for our son’s rooms! I’ve decided to make our babe’s room calming with neutral colours and a subtle animal theme. These homemade art prints are my favourite! The animals look like they are leaping out of the wall! Each figure has the sound that the animal makes. Did you know that the panda says “Huff”?? Super cute.




You will need:

  • Small canvases (Dollar Store)
  • Double Sided Tape
  • Ink pad and letter stamps (Michaels Craft Store)
  • Paint (Dollar Store)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Collection of animal figures (Dollar Store)
  • White Calligraphy Pen/Marker (Michaels Craft Store)


How to make your animal art:

  1. Saw each animal in half with an electric saw or cutter
  2. Paint the canvases with a background colour (I chose blue)
  3. Once dry, draw unique frames using your white marker
  4. Hot glue the animals to centre of each canvas
  5. Use a typewriter style letter stamp for each sound
  6. Hang on walls with double sided tape


Some animal suggestions with coordinating sounds:

  • Panda- Huff
  • Deer- Click
  • Goose- Honk
  • Horse- Neigh
  • Tiger- Grrr
  • Lion- Roar
