Some of our readers have small kids at home or visiting this holiday season. You can find reading about wild horses and burros today, and a few “fun facts,” on the WHEKids website.
As you scroll down, there are activity books, movies and even a couple of no-bake kid-friendly wild horse cookie ideas! Enjoy your holiday time with your kids, grandchildren and the kid in you!
WHE Kids has added a coloring book to our collection of activity books for young children. CLICK text: WHEColorWild
Each coloring page has the original photo and then a converted black-and-white image. Younger kids could enjoy crayons and those a bit older might like colored pencils to explore how they could create wild horses and burros from their imagination.
Using any printer you can select the pages you choose and print out for a fun activity during days when we are all cooped up inside due to bad weather.
You can print our activity book by downloading the pdf: WHEKids+Activity+Book+Holiday+Gift (1)
Or you can view the activity book and read in the digital magazine format by clicking: https://viewer.joomag.com/whekids-activity-book-holiday-gift/0172176001545587350
There are many books and movies we all know. But a fast internet search could find you some new favorites.
We like this one we found in quick search of Youtube. A fast search can help you find some creative book readings like this one of “The Girl That Loved Wild Horses” by Paul Goble (done in a computer program called “After Effects” and may have been a class project).
For over a decade now a favorite for all ages is the movie “Spirit- Stallion of the Cimarron.”
What you might not know is that the movie came at a time when technology was changing. 3-D animation was beginning a journey from video games to big screen. However, 2-D animation held a creative beauty that was timeless. The movie Spirit combined the two types of animation and, artistically speaking, broke new ground. (Our founder was once part of the world of animation and felt this fun fact might be fun for you and any older children in household to learn more about.)
Of course, you can just enjoy the movie without knowing how the movie was made and enjoy the magic.
We also found some super fun “no-bake” cookie recipes online.
You can click the images and go directly to the websites these kid-friendly projects are on. Just leave off the halter and you can make a herd of wild horses!
From the “The Gingerbread Pony” we found Nutter Butter horse cookie project!
Our work continues to protect and preserve wild horses and burros.
