The Sandhill Cranes are back! I heard their unusual WROONK today. If you would like to hear them click on the link below:
The photo shows part of the materials I made for my crane program at camp. It is a parent-child program so I made gray headbands for the adults and tan headbands for the children. We will wear the head bands and do some “crane dancing”. I also made a “bustle” tail for myself. I will look completely ridiculous as I lead the crane dance but the kids will love it. I will admit that I did take some artistic license on the headbands. Cranes do not have red feathers on top of their heads. They have red skin. Sorry to all the ornithologists out there but feathers are way more fun.
The awesome paper crane puppet was downloaded from the International Crane Center. They have many educator resources from preschool through 12th grade. Click on this link:
