We are a HUGE outdoorsy nature loving and geocaching family so searching for animals, their tracks, and even their scat is pretty normal for my kids! (One of our favorite books is Tracks, Scat, and Signs!) But I realize some kids need a little extra prompting to get outdoors or help properly identify animal tracks that they come across on a nature hike. These printable free printable animal tracks Explorer ID Cards will be a great reference when searching for animal prints on the trail! The best place to find animal tracks are on soft muddy areas or shortly after a fresh rain!

I HIGHLY recommend laminating these free printable cards with a simple at home laminator so that it will be water resistant and last longer outdoors. You can even use a hole punch and thread them onto a notebook ring. Stash them in a field bag along with any nature items or clues you come across! If you prefer a more digital version for identifying animal tracks consider the MyNature Animal Tracks app.
