Free Paper Animal Rings Printable

Mini-confession here: I am slightly obsessed over printables, specifically kids' printable activities. Ok, not really obsessed-obsessed, but more like I-am-a-HUGE-fan-obsessed. You see, we've had a lot of sickness going on in our household over the past 3 months or so. (It's a really long story. I'll spare you the details, but we've been through lots of probiotics, Emergen-C, and other stuff. I'm pretty sure we're on the up-swing now.) Basically, what I'm saying is that we've had a rough season, as far as our health is concerned. (We're getting better, though). There have been so many days where I was sick or everybody was sick and I needed a quick activity to keep the boys entertained while I laid on the couch and blew my nose. I had days where Mac was quarantined in his room and was in need of a quiet activity to keep him entertained while he recovered from another cold. During these moments, I have realized that printable kids activities are a mom's best resource. It's been so nice to print out an activity on a sheet of paper and allow it to entertain my boys. Amazing...and oh-so-easy.

So, today I bring you yet another printable kids' activity. I know...I've been making a lot of these lately, but there's just so much to like about them.  1. They're FREE.  2. The kids are enthusiastic about a new activity 3. When they're done, you can toss it in the recycling bin (easy clean up) and 4. It's EASY! Seriously, what is there not to like about printable kids' activities?

Yesterday, we printed and cut out these fun little animal rings and spent quite a while playing with them. Today, at lunch Cheese sat in his high chair and played with one of the rings while I made his lunch. (This is actually a pretty amazing accomplishment, due to the fact that he assumes he will immediately be fed once he is seated in the high chair. #foodie - oh wait...can you use hashtags on a blog? Just Kidding.) So anyway, these rings have been a big hit in our house and have been unintentionally dispersed throughout the rest of the house, because the boys have played with them continuously. If your kids are anything like mine, they will love them.

So, are you ready to print out your own set of animal rings? Here you go:

I recommend printing these rings on card stock. After printing, cut the rings out and tape the ends together to make each ring.

Please keep in mind that you are always more than welcome to use these as much as you like for personal use. You are also free to feature and pin these too, but link to this page, instead of linking to the PDF. :)

I love this printable, but I can not figure out how to download the pdf! could you help me? thank you!

Unknown said...

Hi, Paola.
I'm sorry you're having trouble! Try this link, it may work better.

Paola said...

Thank you for your kind answer, Michelle, but I am afraid this link does not work either: after registering it gets me to a survey which does not work on any browser I use, and it does not start the download. Maybe the problem is that I connect from Europe?

Hi, Paola.
I'm not sure why Docstoc is preventing you from accessing it. It could be a locality issue. I've uploaded the file to another area that shouldn't block anyone. Try this one and let me know if it doesn't work: Printable Animal Rings PDF

Also, Paola.
You shouldn't have to register to download the file from Docstoc, or get a survey for that matter. You might want to scan your computer for malware. I use the one from, myself. It's a good one.

Paola said...

The last link you posted worked fine! Thank you very much! I am now going to make these lovely rings for my niece! Thanks again!

Unknown said...

That's great Paola! Thanks for letting me know. :)
