animal jam paper toys printables – lost temple of zios

by mari

Animal Jam, in association with National Geographic, and Small for Big are starting a great new partnership! I’ll be creating printable animal toys for you to download, print, and assemble your own animals and environments: with a different land and its animals featured each month. Today is the second land in our series.

Animal Jamin association with National Geographic, is an online virtual playground for kids. Players create and customize their own animal characters and dens, chat with friends, adopt pets, team up for adventures, ask real scientists questions, and feed their curiosity about animals and the natural world around them. All the educational content is free, though there is a membership option for additional play.

The game includes several different lands to explore. In the last two months we looked at Appondale, which is based in the Savannah, and Kimbara, which looks to the outback. This month, it’s time for the lush jungles of the Lost Temple of Zios. (this may be my favorite so far – I love lost temples!). Download to create your own temple, gate, tiger, monkey, and panda!

To make the panda and tiger:

  • Cut out the panda and tiger.
  • Fold the sides of the bodies, and the heads.
  • Glue the tabs between the back legs of the tiger and on her nose.
  • Glue the belly to the legs of the Panda.
  • Now play!

To make the monkey:

  • Cut out the monkey.
  • Fold the tail, head, and legs.
  • Now play!

To make the temple and gate:

  • Cut out the pieces.
  • Fold the side tabs back to stand them up.
  • Now play!

I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed making them – let me know what you think in the comments!

I love this! I suggest eagles. My friend loves birds and I have a tiger for my friend who likes cats, a panda for my friend who likes pandas, and a monkey for my sister who likes monkeys. I think a sitting eagle could work for something like Coral Canyons or Kimbara Outback. Thanks!

Guess what SubbieCat – we did Coral Canyon and Kimbara Outback! Here they are:
