Attach the top head part of the raccoon to the bottom part, making sure to align the edges.

There will be a small gap between the top of the mouth and the bottom of the gray head. This is where the nose goes. Glue the black nose halfway on the gray piece and the white piece.

Forest Books For Kids

Reading aloud to your children is one of the simplest and most important things you can do to help them develop a love of reading and learning.

Reading aloud helps children learn new words, understand stories and develop a better vocabulary. It also helps them learn to think creatively and critically. Plus, it’s a great way to spend time together as a family.

So making a habit of reading aloud to your children is such a fabulous idea!

Below are some of our favorite forest animal books for kids. Grab them from the library or add them to your home collection.

The Kissing Hand – This sweet book will not only have kids captivated, but it may also help with separation anxiety. We definitely recommend adding this one to your collection!

Peek-a-Flap Who – This board book is great for toddlers all the way up to kindergarten children. All kids love lifting the flaps, but there are also little facts about the animals in the forest.

Over in the Forest – We love this book for introducing kids to forest animals. Find the hidden animals, learn about forest animals, and discover baby animal names.

Kids’ Forest Animal Crafts

Squirrel Craft – This simple squirrel craft is perfect for kids who love animals and spending time in the forest. All you need is some paper, scissors, and a glue stick.

And if you’re feeling really creative, you can even turn one into a bunny! All you’ll need is some paint, some scissors, and a few other simple supplies!
