Hedgehog Nature Craft

When you have the kids out on a nature walk have them collect leaves, berries and tiny acorns to create a hedgehog. Look at the different shapes of leaves and encourage them to select the ones that you see on our hedgehog so it represents the quills. Mother Nature created wonderful shapes for us to use as great craft materials.


During the autumn, deciduous trees change color and then lose their leaves. This is in preparation for the winter season. Because it gets so cold, the trees have adapted to the winter by going into a period of dormancy or sleep. Source: Just Fun Facts- Interesting facts about leaves.
