💡Skill: Moving your body like an animal builds muscles. Guessing builds cognitive skills.
Animals stretch, leap, hop, and climb. Pretend to be amazing animals, and see if someone can guess who you are!
Here’s how to explain this activity to your child:
Play an animal movement game with our printable masks! Simply cut out the eyes from each animal mask; place the masks face down on the table; and when a player picks and holds up a mask, the other players give clues by making sounds and moving like that animal until the player can guess what animal mask they are wearing! Have more fun by learning to dance like Chickaletta and discovering weird but wonderful animals.
Words to Use
Help your child by adding the sounds an animal might make so guessing is a little easier. If your child is ready for a challenge, make up an animal dance for each animal!
