After our recent trip to the zoo Sophia has become even more enamored with animals and their sounds, so I decided to make some farm animal (and fruit) printables for our refrigerator. Of course you could also use the dishwasher and cookie sheet too! These are great for my 16 month old, but have also been adapted for my 3 1/2 year old since I included words to match the pictures. In fact, Audrey spent more time with the magnets and had loads of fun sorting the animals (big/small, 4 legs/2 legs, in the house/in the barn). Audrey knew some of the shorter words and we worked on initial sounds for the longer words, like strawberries.
Cost of making these magnets:
18 magnets $0.54
Total Cost: $0.74 Now that is in my budget! 🙂
Watching your children be excited about learning: priceless
