It's time for Walk Into The Wild Wednesday!!
 
First, I want to say Happy April Fools Day!  If you're like me, all the days are blending together and I almost forgot until my husband played a trick on me early this morning! 

Today I thought we could have some fun in the wild.

1.  You may not know this, but Elephants are my favorite animal (don't tell my dog Zoey).  My favorite Sesame Street character is Snuffleupagus.  So here is a cute craft you can do with all those empty milk jugs.


2.  You can read about Belle the Elephant at the Milwaukee Zoo and watch her get a bath. 


 

3. The Milwaukee Zoo has Live Cams of Lions, Tigers, Polar Bears and Penguins.  You can also read about all the different animals on their Meet the Animals Page.

 

4.  Ready to learn to draw some wild animals?

     Learn to draw a lion

     Learn to draw a tiger

     Learn to draw a bear


 

5.  Lastly, here is a little cuteness happening at the Bronx Zoo.


 

And for your parents- Have you ever heard of a Victory Garden?  I've been doing some research on building a garden (I've never had time, but now with the whole family home, no excuses).  In my research I keep hearing about Victory Gardens.  I thought I'd share some information I have found.  Good luck and send me pictures if you do make one.

Have a wonderful 1st Day of April!!  Happy to see the sun out, so get outside and soak up the fresh air.


 

Keep letting me know what you are doing to stay busy!  I love getting all of your emails!! 

I miss all of you!
