Woodland Animal Ideas

What could be more fun for kids than learning about woodland animals? A woodland animal unit study is the perfect way for kids to learn about these creatures while having a great time.

There are so many different aspects of woodland animals that kids can explore through printables, crafts, and activities!

One of our favorite things to do whenever we start a new unit is to begin with books. Grab these popular books from your library or grab them from Amazon to add to your home collection!

Bear Can’t Wait– If your child loves the Bear series of books, they’ll want to read the newest one where Bear plans a special surprise for Hare!

A Walk Through the Woods– This beautiful and intricate children’s book will keep children engaged and wanting to turn the page!

Owl Babies– Kids will relate to the message of this cute little book. In it, owl babies are waiting and worrying, will Mommy return? There’s a great resolution and fun illustrations as well.

Woodland Animal Crafts

Crafts are a great activity for kids to do because they help develop important skills.

Fine motor skills, for example, are essential for tasks like writing and buttoning up a shirt. And crafts are a great way to help kids develop these skills. With crafts, kids can practice cutting, gluing, and painting, all of which help to improve fine motor skills.
