We’re now fully in the midst of Fall and we’re excited to bring you this fun cowboy-themed crate: Wild West! We hope the projects for this month will help inspire your child’s love of learning the history of cowboys and the world they lived in.
My Hobby Horse
You can create your own trusty steed to aid you on your cowboy adventures. A cowboy is only as good as his horse after all!
My Cattle Roundup
Then you can make and decorate your own cattle bean bags. Help Steve wrangle them with a fun bean bag toss game.
In this month’s explore! magazine, you’ll head West with Steve the Kiwi. You’ll meet Adrian the armadillo and track down Steve’s missing friend, Betsy the cow. Learn what a day in the life of a old-time cowboy was like and explore other typical jobs for during the same time period. You’ll also get to make your very own covered wagon!
