Handprint and foodprint crafts are great compliments to studying animal tracks.
It allows kids to see what their “tracks” look like and helps them see the shape, toe arrangement, and size in a new way.
Let your kids browse through the pictures below and choose an animal or two that they want to make.
After they’ve had some practice, encourage them to come up with their own animal ideas!
Post pictures of your kids projects in the Facebook group Nature Challenge!
