The start of summer and the end of another busy school year, June is also National Zoo and Aquarium Month, the perfect time to learn more about the wild animals your children love most, instilling within them a compassion for wildlife and the environment.
Read a Book
Whether you take a trip to the library or a nearby bookstore, encourage your children to pick out books about their favorite animals this month, reading them together to learn more about these incredible creatures. We recommend choosing books with plenty of pictures so your little ones can visualize how these magnificent creatures live in the wild.
Take a Trip to the Zoo
There are few things as exciting for young children as a trip to a zoo or aquarium, and seeing the awe on their faces when they see their favorite animals just a few feet away is sure to make you smile too. Instead of running from exhibit to exhibit, take some time to read the plaques and signs, learning about each of the animals to make this fun activity an educational one as well.
Regardless of how you celebrate National Zoo and Aquarium Month, your child will enjoy bringing their favorite stuffed animal friend along to participate in the fun.
Here at The Zoo Factory, we have lots of wild animals and sea creatures that can join you on your adventures! Not only are our stuffable animals fun to play with, but stuffing them is a great afternoon activity to do with your kids. Shop with us online or call us at 866-993-3325 to place your order.
