To go with our book theme Good Night Gorilla I put together a "guess who" zoo animal board. I used envelopes and a foam board. Each envelope had a flashcard of a zoo animal and on the front of the envelope I put a picture of the animals pattern.
I attached clips to each of the cards so that it would be easy to pull them out. He loved this activity and would scream every time he pulled out a card and saw the animal. This game can be used with preschoolers/kindergarten, you can try to have them guess what animal is inside based on the pattern on the front.
He lined up all the cards after he took them out and just counted them. I loved making this for him and he enjoyed this activity a lot.
After he was finished with his activity he went over to the shelf and grabbed his book. I love that all these activities are making him love books :).
If you would like to recreat this activity or even just do a match the animal to its pattern activity feel free to grab the free Zoo Animals printable below.
