DIY – Build A Stuffed Animal Zoo

0 Comment

Found this on-line somewhere. This is a great idea for keeping stuffed toys coralled, kids can get in and out of the ‘ZOO’ easily and it can make a neat fort to play in. Depending on the age of the kids, I might not use ceramic animals to decorate the ZOO with.

DIY – Build A Stuffed Animal Zoo

What you need:
*Four 1/2-IN x 1-1/2-IN pine boards: 4-FT/121.92 CM pieces
*Nine 0.75-IN x 3.5-IN pine boards: 1-YD/91.44 CM pieces
*White paint
*Paintbrush
*Drill
*Drill bit
*Screws
*Ceramic figurines
*Hot glue and glue gun
*Eye screws
*Nylon rope
*Wooden letters
Instructions:
(A) 1/2-IN x 1-1/2-IN Pine Boards x 4

(B) 0.75-IN x 3.5-IN Pine Boards x 8

Put together four (B) boards in a square, with two screws for each corner. Drill a pilot hole before drilling in the screw. Repeat for each corner.

Attach the (A) boards to the corners of the square base as pillars.

Put together another square using 4 more of the (B) boards, then attach to the pillars.

Paint the whole structure. Let dry.

Measure out so that there would be 5 inches between each hook. Drill pilot holes, then screw the Eye Screws into the pilot holes. Do 8 sets of 5 hooks each on each edge, for a total of 20 hooks.

Thread the nylon rope through the top and bottom hook, then tie a knot on one end. pull tight, and tie the knot on the other end. Cut, then seal the end with hot glue to keep from fraying.

Paint wooden letters and the extra (B) Board and let dry.

Place the Last (B) board face down on the top front of the ‘Zoo’. Make pilot holes and drill.

Make pilot holes in the wooden letters after positioning them on the front of the ‘zoo’.

Drill the letters in. Hot glue ceramic animals onto the (B) board placed on top.
