Awwww! Can anyone resist the sweet little face of a hedgehog? We certainly can’t! They are quite cute, but not so cuddly. The nocturnal mammal’s distinctive look includes prickly spines covering its back. They serve a very important purpose and provide protection while the animal sleeps or if they feel threatened.
Let’s create an adorable hedgehog of our own to celebrate the arrival of autumn. We can make its prickly back with fall leaves collected outside in your own backyard, neighborhood, or local trail. If you live in a location without seasonal changes, just use your imagination to hunt for other items like pine needles, small twigs, or even dry grasses.
Now, consider giving your new pet a name and be sure to find a good spot to display your work! You can read about more hedgehog facts here.
