Well it looks like we are all in love with April. If you are not sure who April is… she is the pregnant Giraffe in New York that everyone is watching via a streaming live videocam. All of us are on #babygiraffewatch and I must say we are all getting pretty impatient and ready for her to have this calf! We had to go learn what the signs are for a giraffe in labor and wrote an article about them. So now, we are here to help with some giraffe crafts, activities, lessons and printables to keep us all preoccupied while we wait!!
