There many ways in which you can integrate miniature animal figurines into your toddler's play!

 

You're not only teaching them about the different types of animals, you're also working on their other developing skills. 

 

Here are some play ideas using your Animal Figures Play Set.

 

Shadow Drawing

 

Take the animal figures outside in the sun, place them on a blank sheet of paper, give your child a pencil and let them draw the figures! This will help your child recognizes to basic concepts of physics - when the sun moves, the shadow moves too.

Sorting

 

Have several labeled baskets for grouping. Grouping can happen by size, color, farm animals vs safari animals, herbivores vs omnivores vs carnivores ... so many options here! Both matching and sorting activities help your child recognize differences through utilizing their visual skills and develop their fine motor skills.
