To complete this “bumps on a log” craft, the first thing you need to do is print our provided file, on a single sheet of BROWN cardstock paper. You only need one print per craft.
Next up, help young children cut out the log shape and glue it to a piece of green cardstock paper for the grass.
Then, when ready, it’s time for the ants! Grab a black ink pad, white cardstock paper, a thin tipped marker and tiny googly eyes.
Help children create several black thumbprint ants on paper and then trim them out so they can glue them all over the brown log design.
And that’s it! Children can of course add any other embellishments they see fit and then they will have an awesome piece to show off on the fridge!
