Good morning, crafty folks! Today I’m sharing this gorilla craft that my six-year-old painted yesterday. I love how she used her watercolor paints here to blend the blue, purple, and black paints together. She made this cartoon gorilla craft a few years ago, so we were due for a newer, more realistic one. Print below and enjoy!
