Relentlessly Fun, Deceptively Educational: Animal Tracks Match-Up Game Printable I would love to use these prints to make stamps that can be pressed into little sugar cookie dough balls and baked into "fossilized footprints" or something like that. Then, bury them in some brown sugar or something and have kids dig them up. Whoever can correctly identify which prints came from which animals first wins.)
animal tracks match up game
Animal tracks match-up. I plan to use along witha project using salt dough so the kids can create an animal print and cast it.
