{FREE} Forest Animals Coloring Pages with Traceable Fun Facts!

You can use this {FREE} Forest Animals Coloring Pages with Traceable Fun Facts Packet in so many ways!

I made this packet to go with our Forest Animals Poppins Book Nook theme.  Forests are one of our absolute favorite places to explore!  Normally our kids play in the southern humid forests of southeast Texas, but this summer they got to check out some higher mountain forests too!  They had a blast camping, boating, and hiking... which go right along with the book we want to share this month: Just Me and My Dad by Mercer Mayer.

In the story, they encounter a mischievious bear, and a few other animals.  While we didn't see any bears in our forests on this trip, we did see deer, squirrels, birds, rabbits, and we even smelled a skunk!  I was very excited to put together this {FREE} packet that showcases eleven forest animals and some fun facts about them!

These coloring pages can be just coloring pages...or they can be so much more!  You can glue sand, torn construction paper, feathers, or yarn to the pictures to give them a cool texture.  It gives your kiddos great fine motor practice too!  Older children can read and trace the fun facts at the bottom of each page!  Even older kiddos can research the animal and learn more about the fun fact...for example, why do owls have three eyelids?  Here is a picture of the owl page:

In addition to the owl page, the ten other animals include a bear, squirrel, skunk, deer, bird, hedgehog, fox, mouse, raccoon, and rabbit!
