One of the toughest things any mom has to face on a daily basis is finding things to keep your kids entertained. Young kids love to be creative, but ‘creative’ usually means ‘messy’, whether that means getting paint all over your furniture or ingredients all over your kitchen.
But not every creative activity is messy, and some are deceptively simple - like towel animals.
If you’ve been on vacation with your family to places like Disneyland or on a luxury cruise, you’ll have seen the elaborate ways staff leave bath and beach towels on your beds for you. It’s part of the charm that you’re paying for and always delights the children.
You might have tried making them in the past, but the guides you can find on the internet often aren’t very helpful, even those with photographs. Luckily, Credit Card Compare has come up with animated gif guides that you and your kids will be able to follow to create a range of cute towel animals.
The beauty of making towel animals is that the main equipment you need is already in your home - towels! If you’ve got hand towels, bath towels and wash cloths and a few rubber bands, you are all set to start creating.
There’s a great range of animals you can make, some easier than others, so don’t worry if you can’t get them all right first time. My personal favorites are the Baby Monkey and the Elephant.

What’s great about these animations is that you can really see what you need to do at all times in the process, instead of looking at photos and trying to figure out how to get from one to the other.
