A while back, we made this cute hedgehog/porcupine craft, as well as this handprint one and I thought it was time to create a new one with a spin on it.
This one is of a cute little hog laying on its back. We painted ours in a rainbow of blues, purples and pinks. =) You can print the template below! Also be sure to scroll for some fun hedgehog facts!
Facts About Hedgehogs:

– They get their name from foraging around bushes and hedges in search of their favorite foods – worms, insects, centipedes, mice, frogs, snails, and even snakes!
– Hedgehogs hibernate in cold climates.
– They live around 6 years and weigh around 1.5 pounds (700g).
