I’ve also adopted some of Hubbard’s Cupboard’s suggested activities for zoo animals. Hannah enjoyed making animal prints/tracks on her play-dough and paint. Even now, she’ll ask for her animals whenever she plays play-dough.
We’ve also learned to separate farm animals from wild animals. Sadly, our stack of plastic animals didn’t have much of the wild animals. So the comparison was a little lopsided. Hannah insisted of having the ostrich as a farm animal. She’s not entirely wrong there! :)
If you have older kids, you can create your own zoo as suggested by “No Time for Flash Cards”. We’ll definitely try this out when Hannah starts writing!
TIP: For the paint, I simply added food dye into water and used old cardboard so that Hannah can splosh splash however she wants. I’ll probably get proper paint when Hannah’s older.
