Hello Nature Investigators! Today we are back with a super fun nature craft activity. Alex learns that by wearing a mask made of found natural material, he is able to camouflage in the forest – much to Lily’s surprise!
If you want to learn more about camouflage, check out these books:
- Hide-And-Seek Science: Animal Camouflage by Emma Stevenson
- How to Hide an Octopus and Other Sea Creatures by Ruth Heller
There are also some really cool pictures of animals hiding in plain sight that you can find here. Can you think of animals that are really good at not being seen? What bugs and animals can you find outside that are using camouflage to hide themselves? Think about why they are hiding? Who are they hiding from, and why???
Happy material gathering, mask designing, and camouflaging!
