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.
