Ah, the Mandrill. We have a couple of these at our local zoo and they are always fun to watch. Sometimes they are sitting there like sentries, watching us, and other times they are roaming. We did this craft last week and it turned out so cute.
Note: the face of this mandrill is pretty complicated. Have your child take it slow and paint lighter colors first if he/she is a perfectionist… or just let them go crazy. It doesn’t have to be exact!!
