Forests are full of amazing creatures. If you keep your eyes and ears open you just might meet one. Often the animals are very busy making and maintaining their homes. Next time you are out on a nature walk, collect some leaves and sticks to make a home for an imaginary animal. Lay the items that you collect on the ground and arrange them to make a house. What kind of animal would live in the house you built? Would they like it to be soft, sturdy, cozy or roomy? Let your imagination soar.
