50 Free Forest Crafts & Activities
I thought we'd begin the series with a fun introduction to forest animals since almost every child enjoys (and is enthralled by) woodland creatures.
These fun activities will introduce kids to all types of animals that call the forest home! As the kids are cutting, crafting & having fun with these free printables, talk to them about why they live in the forest, whether they would enjoy seeing the animals in real life and what questions they may have about each of our woodland friends.
