Description

In this activity about backyard habitats learners create a safe and toad-friendly environment near their own home. Since frogs and toads are too sensitive to touch, observing them in this make-shift home is a great idea for families. Have fun and be creative by using rocks and twigs to surround the abode; every toad needs a good home!

This is a really fun project. A toad needs a good home too, I'll be sure to construct one soon for our toads in the backyard.
