Toddlers love glueing and this craft project will give them the opportunity to stick wooden lolly sticks onto a hedgehog body shape to create their own little woodland friend.
Age group: 18 months +
TIP: *If you prefer, you can cut out the Hedgehog shape before adhering the sticks. You can then use the hedgehog shapes in a display with other woodland creatures made out of natural materials.
*The body of the hedgehog can be painted or drawn directly onto the coloured card if you don’t want to colour it by hand. Think about using Autumn colours for the card for extra effect.
*It also looks great if you cover the body in a mixture of seeds/beans/rice or lentils instead of colouring.
