Wet and Wild

Wet and Wild craft

Imaginations take a walk on the wild side when you create your own rainforest.

  • 1.

    Find out about tropical rainforests and jungles, such as what kinds of animals and plants inhabit these places. Visit zoos or museums with rainforest or jungle displays. Look at the details in famous jungle art, such as "The Waterfall" by Henri Rousseau. Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are is a children's book that can inspire your own wild things. Talk with someone who has been to the rainforest to get their impressions, too.
