This collection of EASY HEDGEHOG CRAFTS FOR KIDS is perfect for your autumn art and craft sessions. We love this time of year when evenings are drawing in and the leaves are starting to change colour on the trees. Autumn and winter always see us doing more crafting than we do at other times of the year because it gets too chilly and dark to spend as much time playing outdoors!
We’ve always been really fond of hedgehogs and are lucky enough to have them visit our garden most nights until they go into hibernation! These wonderful Easy Hedgehog Craft Ideas are a great celebration of these amazing prickly animals!
Whether you are simply a hedgehog fan or are looking for a hedgehog craft to go alongside nocturnal, hibernation or woodland animal study themes, you’re sure to find the perfect hedgehog activity to try here. In fact there are so many cute hedgehog crafts I’m sure you’ll spot a few that you’ll want to try.
There are over twenty five different hedgehog art and crafts to choose from here and as we create more we’ll add them in too, so do check back later.
Below you’ll see a photograph of each hedgehog activity and a short description and link that you can click to view the full details. Happy hedgehog crafting!
