Kids will go wild for this fun animal habitat craft activity! Perfect to complement your studies on Africa and the animals who live there.

You can also use the scenery to create a centre to use with your own animal toys, playdough or use the paper animals in your sand tray or block corner. Endless possibilities for fun on your African animal safari!!
