This is a cute way to send notes to parents, co-workers, or to your students.
Print the animal templates onto colorful paper, cut out, and write your note. Or print the templates onto white paper and color parts of the animals yourself. When you are done writing your note take the bottom of the template and place it on the line below the animal's face and fold. Then, take the arms of the animals and fold them inward over the note. This will keep the note in place and it will look like the animal is holding the note. You will have to draw black lines on the arms when they have been folded over.
There is a puppy, cat, bear, frog, and a bird.
Note: These are printables not clip art and they are not editable.
