Make this very fun and educational project for your animal-loving kids!
Supplies: cardboard pieces, sponges, scissors, hot glue gun, ink, and card stock
Step one: We spent time finding animal tracks in books and online. Then we picked three different types of tracks we wanted to make!
Step two: Cut pieces of cardboard into 4 x 4 squares or larger.
Step three: With supervision, cut the shapes of the tracks from the sponges. It may help to trace it onto the sponges first. The tracks may or may not look exactly like the animal portrayed 😉
Step four: Glue onto the cardboard and begin letting your child dip them in ink. We used bingo daubers, which worked fabulous!
Step five: Make tracks all over the card stock. Then we wrote down what type of animal corresponded to the tracks.
