Crafts are a very important part of a child’s development. As they use their imagination to create and build they develop skills they will use throughout the rest of their life.

This craft is a great way to get away from electronics and promote a healthy mind. As the kids learn to put this animal together they are learning to listen to directions given.

More Woodland Themed Activities

Take a woodland adventure walk and find the things all around you. These things can include leaves, rocks, pine needles, flowers, etc. A great place to keep the things your child finds is in an old egg carton.

A great book my kids love to read is called Woodland Dreams. The book walks your child through saying goodnight to all the woodland animals. After a fun day of activities, this would be a great way to end it.

Go on a walk, hike, or drive in a nearby forest and see what woodland animals you can see.
