Have you met Rohan Sharad Dahotre? He's an artist and illustrator in Pune, India. One of his many projects is adding line illustrations over photos of animals.
As always, click on the image to be taken to the artist's website, where you can find more of his work.
This is an idea you can definitely try with the kids (or by your own grown-up self), whenever a sudden attack of "I'm bored" sets in. All you need is an animal-ish magazine (old National Geographics, or Ranger Ricks) and some paint pens. Prompt them/yourself with "what should this animal wear?" or "design the perfect outfit for this particular animal" or "draw a place for this animal to relax/live/eat dinner" and watch the creative magic happen.
