Adventures with Wild Kratts

20 Jan

If you have little kids you have probably heard of the PBS show, Wild Kratts.  It is a pretty darn cool program and we all learn tons of stuff from this incredible show.

Since it is the dead of winter and going outside doesn’t always work, (it is -40 below or Hudson is napping) I decided to spark a little fun and imagination for inside.

I made them Creature Power Suits and Creature Power Discs.  In the show, if the Kratt brothers have the special suit on and then put in a specific disc- they will change into whatever creature they are following or trying to learn about.  In past episodes they have transformed into giraffes, fishes, moose, kangaroos, koalas, birds and even snakes.  It is a great show to get kids excited about nature and creatures.

The girls ran around this morning deciding what creature to transform into and calling one another on their special wrist communicators (also with walkie talkies).

This was very easy to throw together for the kids and will produce tons of good imaginative play in the little ladies!  I used felt for the suit and the discs and cut out different animals from random fabric I had in my wonderful stash.  Since felt sticks to felt, they can easily change what animal they want to be throughout their playtime.

    Caitlyn, what a great idea! I think I’ll make some of this stuff for Emma and Bahia….Wild Krats is their favorite and I’ve been impressed with how much they learn from it! My grandma made us mouseketeer hats to wear while we watched the Mickey Mouse Show many, many years ago:)! Wild Krats are many steps up from that show! Thanks for the good idea and inspiration!

      I bet Emma and Bahia would love playing with these! Yes I do agree that shows are MUCH more educational than they used to be =) thanks for the comment Nancy!
