Review: Animal Homeland Mosaics

We love doing arts and crafts so I made sure to add this kit to our Timberdoodle curriculum for this year. Animal Homeland Mosaics has a bunch of different animals you get to add stickers and gems, too.

We did end up taking turns to complete it because she said her hand was starting to hurt. Which I get because it is a lot of scratching for an almost 4 year old to be doing and she didn’t want to take a break and finish at later time. 

My daughter really enjoyed this kit and asked if we could do more cards together but I told her we have space them out for the year with our…
