Two children chose to work on the deer hooves. They decided to shop in our natural items area and in the bag containing natural items from our Wild Wilderness Wednesday hikes. The two hoof creators chose pieces of aged tree bark to create the hooves. Each hoof would be fashioned using two pieces of bark. To secure the two pieces of bark together, the children stapled a piece of wire to the bark pieces and then wound the wire around the two pieces of bark. They pushed the remaining wire through the center of the two pieces of bark and then wound the two pieces tightly together. Using a ladder and Darrell’s support one child wound the piece of extended wire sticking out from the center of the two pieces of bark through holes at the bottom of the chicken wire acting as the feet.
