 World Animal Day – Day 5

It all started with this question :

Q: Where do animals live ?

A: Mommy they live in the zoo.

I couldn’t believe my ears – I knew I had to correct that , but how do I explain? We decided to do animals and their habitats with our very own play-doh.

We picked out 7 animals and 2 insects to start with – why 7 & 2 ?? Just what she wanted 🙂

The goal here was to introduce the animals and give some insight into their habitat and their diet. Just some facts that will go well with the kids.

Bears live in caves. They are just like us – they eat meat and plant food. Winnie-the-pooh bear likes honey!  They hibernate in winter and sleep for 6 months .

These are a farmers pets. “Domestic Animals” . They live in a barn. They eat plants and plant food.

Big S’s own Barn Tale : The cow and horse were best buddies and wanted to have a sleep over so, the farmer made a barn . The friends ate grass and had a really fun time.
