"This cute papercraft uses an easy-to-download template, paper, scissors, and glue to create the cutest hedgehog playmate! All it takes is to trace the different parts of the hedgehog, cut them out, and glue them together, and you will have the cutest little critter. This craft is perfect for any age and skill level. Younger children can practice their fine motor skills with tracing and cutting. You can also trace and cut to save time. "
