Learn About Narwhals

Because the narwhal is such a strange and magical animal, this is the perfect time to teach children all about them.

You can introduce the narwhal and its environment by reading a simple children’s book about narwhals, like this one.

If the children are older and want to learn more about narwhals, this book may be better suited for them.

After you read about narwhals, ask the children if they have any questions about these mysterious animals.

You can even show them a short video on narwhals, like this one from Nat Geo WILD:

After they’ve learned all about narwhals, make this fun paper craft!

First, you’ll want to use to be sure you have all the pieces printed off and ready to go.

If the children you’re doing this narwhal craft with aren’t able to cut out the pieces themselves, you’ll also want to have them cut ahead of time.

To make this craft last longer, you can also consider printing the narwhal and tusk on white card stock.

This way the children can use their artistic skills to color it any way they want! Not only will this add time to the craft, but it will also help kids work on proper pencil grasp and fine motor skills.
