Is there anything better than freeing your kid’s imagination? It truly is wonderful to see what they create. This summer we have been creating and playing our way through our summertime fun list and one item on that list is learning about animals. The only question is which animals and how will we learn? So, last week we hit the library and the girls picked up a few books about whichever animals they liked…rabbits and giraffes. When we got home we started our summer animal series.
Our summer animal series is a great way to promote learning and have fun! After reading the books, my girls answered a few simple questions about their animals. Here are the questions…
My youngest daughter, Cee, wrote out her rabbit answers on red construction paper. She loved doing this little research project.
The final step was drawing and colouring a picture of their animal in its’ natural habitat. I rolled out a large sheet of blank paper and gathered up a variety of crayons, markers and pencil crayons.

The artwork was hung up with pride. This week we’ll pick out a few new animal books…who knows what they’ll pick.

My son would love this activity (despite being not yet three). He loves all animals and knows a surprising amount about them – he amazed me the other day by telling me pandas ate bamboo (I didn’t teach him that!)
I love the fox in your daughters picture, he looks very sneaky
Thanks, it is so much fun learning about animals…I always learn something new!
