Rainforest Crafts and Rainforest Preschool Activites, Kindergarten Art Projects, Rhymes, and Printables

Rainforest Preschool Activites and Rainforest Crafts! Take children on a walk through the wilds of a tropical rainforest, home to over half of the world's species of animals and plants. This natural world of bright colors, interesting sounds, strong smells, and tasty treats opens up all sorts of possibilities for learning. The theme includes activities and games that will have children counting to thirty with a boa constrictor, matching letters with sloths, adding numbers with hummingbirds, constructing rain sticks, decorating a classroom mural, making banana treats, creating flower patterns, and much more. So, grab a hiking stick and have fun!
