Let's Investigate - Farmyard Footprints

Each double-sided stone has the raised footprint of an animal on one side and an image of the animal indented into the other side. Press the footprint into sand, mud or soil and create a trail for children to follow. What animal might they find at the end: cow, horse, sheep, pig, dog, cat, chicken or duck? They can record their findings by taking rubbings, making impressions in play dough, creating prints using paints and discovering what else they know or can find out about each animal. Made from a unique stone mix, the footprints are robust enough to be used throughout an early years setting including outdoors. Contains eight double-sided stones (70–80mm).
