Cute and cuddly animals brighten everyone’s day; even a child who feels anxious, or a kid who loves all things technology and robotics. There’s just something about their sweet little faces that appeal to everyone.
That’s why, when I saw this Woodland Whimsy collection by Schoolgirl Style, I knew I had to share it.
Part of the Woodland Whimsy Animals Cut-Outs set, which also
includes deer, foxes, rabbits & squirrels.
The full 36-piece set is $5.99 at Carson Dellosa.
I mean, seriously, could these little guys get any cuter? My seven-year-old wannabe baker and my nine-year-old aspiring engineer both melted when I showed them these classroom decorations.
And the messages on these posters are fantastic:
Stand Tall poster and Other People Matter poster
by Schoolgirl Style, $3.49 each at Carson Dellosa
Other products, within the Woodland Whimsy collection, that I love include:
- the set of 36 butterflies
- the Stay Curious poster that I featured in my Curiosity Jar classroom-management article
- the big tree bulletin board set, including 43 green leaves
- the set of 36 fall-colored leaves
- the wood-grain straight border strips, which come in a set of 12
- the birch border strips are fabulous, too
Other fun touches
A few more ways to bring the Woodland Whimsy collection to life, including: wooden stools, “tree stump” storage stools and laundry baskets, stickers and butterfly cut-outs nestled everywhere.
Galvanized metal accents like bins, planters and feed troughs, for school supply storage and your classroom library. I’ve also seen birch and reclaimed-wood designs of “better than paper” bulletin board rolls (Cool stuff. Watch the video!) and self-adhesive contact paper on Amazon.
Pro tip: get parents to help
Last, but not least, use your Favorite Things list to hint that you’d love make your woodland theme truly interactive. Here are a couple gems from that would be great for indoor recess and extending science lessons!
Here’s where you can find them:
Woodland Habitat Connectagons building play set
Observation bird house
You may need a window covering of some sort for the observation birdhouse to keep students’ attention when feathered friends aren’t part of the lesson plan! 🙂
Not sure what I meant by a Favorite Things list? This article below explains – and includes a free template if you’d like one.
Parents, you can initiate this practice, as well, if your child’s school doesn’t have a resource like this. (Don’t forget to promote it to other parents.)
