Zoo Animal Crafts and Activities for Toddlers
I think zoo animals are one of our favorite themes to do (after dinosaurs!) Toddlers love all animals and it's a great topic to get stuck into to. While you don't need too many toys for these we did find that purchasing some zoo animal toys helped a lot with our pretend play and setup ideas. We really like these ones (pictured below) which you can find HERE on Amazon.
We LOVE to explore zoo animals and there are so many great toddler zoo books to go with this theme too. Our favorite is Dear Zoo (available HERE on Amazon) We also love some of these animal board books.
I would love to see pictures of your toddlers and their zoo animal crafts and activities. Share them in our Facebook group or over on Instagram (use #myboredtoddler and follow @myboredtoddler so we can see!)

Ashka set up a zoo animal parade - use painter's tape or even chalk (better outside) to set this up.
Caitie made a zoo animal sensory bin using dyed rice (see how easy it is to dye rice HERE).
