I have a thing for rainforest animals! Ok, well really ALL animals, but I especially love the tropical variety! As a kid, I actually had a whole jungle/rainforest-themed bedroom (complete with faux vines that hung down from my bunk bed). So it probably then comes as no surprise, I’m SUPER excited about our upcoming trip to Costa Rica and the chance to see some absolutely incredible rainforest animals in the wild! To help the kids get even more excited for the trip, I decided to look for some fun rainforest animal crafts we could do and found SO many adorable options!!! Rainforest Animal Crafts
