Lorelai and I are working on a new theme during spring break — the African Savannah! One of the first animals that came to mind in that category was the warthog. We recently watched Lion King and Pumba is one of the characters in that movie that we both loved. Designing and crafting this one was a treat! Grab your printable copy below and check out the facts at the bottom of this post. Enjoy!
