It all started with a fantastic idea. I wanted to expose my children to as many forest animals as possible and have fun while learning. Unfortunately, I did not have half the tools needed to create my fantastic idea.
This led me to think of an alternative- what could I do that was not as awesome but good enough that they would still want to play and learn with our forest animals preschool theme?
What did I create? A movable scene printable that was cheap, simple and educational- a big win.
To prepare this activity you will need a few things:
- Velcro dots or Fun Tak
- laminating sheets or a protective sheet
- cardstock (to print your scene and animals on)
- scissors or stencil knife
- Forest Animals Scene printable pack
First print your forest animals printable on cardstock. This pack includes the scene itself as well as a collection of 20 animals.
Second, cut out the animals with either a pair of scissors or a stencil knife.
Third, either laminate your scene or slip it into a protective sheet for durability.
Fourth, add either a Velcro Dot or a small ball of Fun Tak to the back of your animals
Fifth, allow your child to move them wherever they see fit.
