Here is another craft I have been sitting on since before my baby was born 2 months ago. Um, oops! It’s funny how a baby can make time just fly right by. I’m really enjoying this newborn stage. I feel like with my first daughter and her prolonged NICU stay, the beginning went too fast. Soaking up every minute with this little one has been a joy and a blessing. I put up a picture of her on my Instagram – go follow! =)
Anyway, back to the craft. Since we finished up our African Savannah Animals, we moved on to… the DESERT! Lorelai chose this one with a certain creepy-crawly in mind… but we’ll get to that one later. For now, here’s a perfectly cute and harmless jackrabbit. Print and read up on the facts below!
Facts About Jackrabbits:
– Jackrabbits are considered hares, not rabbits. Hares have taller legs & longer ears than rabbits.
– Black-tailed jackrabbits are common in American deserts.
– They live up to 5 years and weigh up to 9 pounds.
– Jackrabbits have lots and lots of babies – females give birth several times a year with up to 6 young in each litter!
– They are herbivores.
