Ant Anatomy with Natural Materials

sunny kimComment

We've done quite a few activities that focused on ants. We've gone on nature walks observing our tiny friends, made an ant farm, drew and even painted the little critters. But one of Emma's favorite was building an ant's anatomy by using natural materials!

Whenever I prepare an activity, I try my best to set it up to look inviting. There are plenty of activities that don't go according to plan but this was definitely a hit! There were moments when she would get sidetracked, but I would just redirect her to concentrate on our activity. Excited to say, but this activity has been on repeat for the past couple of days!

We used a collection of skinner sticks we found on our walk as well as store bought thicker sticks. I also cut out wings from transparency paper.
