Craft Of The Week: Sock Monkey + Challenge 18

Hey, it’s 🥭!

Challenge 18: Make a list of things that you see outdoors, one for every letter of the alphabet.

See if there’s more nature than man made things on your list and let us know!

Now for the craft!

Craft Of The Week: Sock Monkey + Challenge 18

Today’s craft is a sock monkey. I made one about a year ago and my skills have improved amazingly, but here’s a picture of it anyway.

I will link where I found the instructions from at the bottom, and I followed this picture guide to help me:

I hope you enjoy making the craft (feel free to send us a pic) and have a nice weekend.

Animal Of The Week: Red-necked Wallaby

Hi, it’s 🥳

These animals were suggested to me (again) by 🥭 and they are like, the cutest animals in the entire world! I have loved researching these animals, and I hope you enjoy reading.

Animal Of The Week:
Red-necked Wallaby

Species: Red-necked (Bennett’s) Wallaby

Population: I couldn’t find a population as they live all over the world now, but the population trend is stable at the moment.

Conservation Status: Least Concern

Fun Facts: 1) They are crepuscular animals, so are most active at twilight. 2) They normally live to be about 5 years old in human care, but some have lived longer. 3) Red-necked Wallabies are solitary animals but sometimes congregate to eat. These groups change all the time though. 4) They are native to Australia but have been introduced into other countries like the UK, France and Germany.

How Does Climate Change Affect Them?: As the climate warms and it snows less in certain places across the world (like Tasmania), red-necked wallabies move up the mountains because they aren’t being kept down by the large amounts of snow in winter. This means that they won’t be eating the same food and populations of certain species will rise/fall, changing the ecosystem.

Pictures:

“The Bennett’s Wallaby is a subspecies, common to Tasmania, of the Red-necked Wallaby (Macropus rufogriseus) which is a medium-sized macropod, common in the more temperate and fertile parts of eastern Australia. As one of the largest wallabies, it can easily be mistaken for a kangaroo. Males can weigh more than 20 kg and attain a head-body length of 90 cm.”

Craft Of The Week: Cardboard Windcatcher + Challenge 11

Hey, it’s 🥭!

Before we start with the craft, today’s challenge was to make a daisy chain. They’re very fun and easy and I love decorating with them!

Now for the craft

Craft Of The Week: Cardboard Windcatcher + Challenge 11

You will need:

  • Cardboard
  • String
  • Beads
  • Scissors
  • Pens

Instructions:

  1. Cut out a nice shape from cardboard. It could be anything! Make holes in the bottom
  2. Get the string and tie the beads on. Make enough strings of beads to take up all the holes
  3. Attach the string to the holes and add any details you want to with the pen

I like this craft because it’s hard to go wrong, but it’s not a 5 minute type thing. I’m still working on my cardboard one, but I made a wooden one with a kit I got for Christmas!

As always, we would love to see your creations so feel free to send us photos either in the comments or by email at project_eco@outlook.com! Thanks for reading,

-🥭
