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.
Ways for parents to help offset these expenses
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.)
