Toddlers love animals and the best gift for them is to meet them at the nationals parks, zoos, aquariums or at least have a pet. Sadly we cannot go out so here are some games, books, songs that will help bring the animal kingdom to your house
Identify And Learn Animal Names and Sounds
Repetition is key to all toddler learnings. So everyday take out 10 minutes to learn all animal names with your toddler. Use Animal learning free printable shared to See, Learn and Repeat wild animal names, sea animal names, farm animal sounds.
Experience is the second element to toddler learning. What a child experiences through the five senses is stored in their memories for a longer time. It is important for our toddlers to see, interact and meet animals in their life as many times. You can your toddlers to a zoo, farm, natural park, sanctuary or get a pet for them in a safe environment obviously after the lockdown is over.
