A while back, we did a zoo theme. We had recently visited the Calgary Zoo which is pretty fabulous as zoos go and the kids were curious to learn more about some of the animals.
I had several activities set up for the kids in their workboxes including making foam animal puppets, doing zoo animal lacing cards and putting together a zoo train puzzle.
Our zoo theme muffin tin lunch:
-animal in the mud (animal cracker in pudding)
-zoo animal fruit gummies
-tiger tiger ice cream
We used lots of fun printables throughout the week. Here are some of the links if you want to print off your own!
Of course no zoo week would be complete without a trip to the zoo on the last day! We visited our local zoo this time which is undergoing renovations and admission that day was free which was a bonus!
This little guy kept coming over and jumping up to give Miss Optimism a kiss through the glass! It was pretty cute!
