Have fun with our animal tracks. There are endless uses for teaching opportunities such as, comparing footprints, poster coloring of the animal and footprint, or making salt dough to recreate their very own animal track to take home.

We have also seen really neat t-shirts made from these stamps as well.

The Blue jay or Cyanocitta cristata is a passerine bird in the family Corvidae, native to eastern North America.

It lives in most of the eastern and central United States; some eastern populations may be migratory. Resident populations are also in Newfoundland, Canada; breeding populations are found across southern Canada.

Blue jays are omnivorous, but the Audubon Society estimates that 75% of their diet is vegetable matter. They have strong black bills which they use for cracking nuts, usually while holding them with their feet, and for eating corn, grains and seeds.

Blue jays particularly love to eat peanuts in the shell.
