If you’re like most parents, you’re always on the lookout for ways to bring more education into the lives of your children. You want them to be enriched by every experience, but you also want them to have fun. After all, if something isn’t fun, you’re little ones won’t be engaged and interested!
At Wild Animal Safari, it’s easy to have an adventure that also provides plenty of learning opportunities. And we’re not just talking about repeating facts, but creating truly memorable experiences that help kids of all ages learn how to appreciate the entire animal kingdom.
If you’re looking for ways to enhance your next visit, we’ve got you covered. The following ideas can transform your safari adventure into a full learning experience.
This is an easy game for kids of all ages, and it can be played in a few different ways. You can see how many names of animals your kid remembers after each section of the park. So, after you drive through, you can see who can quickly name off more of the animals you saw. If you have more than one child, you can let them compete for animal king or queen, giving a small treat or privilege to whoever can remember the most. When you’re headed home, you can play one more round to test their memories, while also passing a little bit of time on the drive back.
Create a scavenger hunt
Going on a safari should be an adventure! You can turn your trip into a true safari by making a Wild Animal scavenger hunt. All you need to do is make a list of animals and park features. This might include types of animals, or even animal behaviors, for your little ones to discover and check off. For instance, you can put “monkey-eating lunch” as an item. During the course of your visit, your kids can mark off everything they find. The one that finds the most items wins!
Make a passport
No Wild Animal adventure is complete without a passport! You can create your own passport, listing areas of the park and animals you might see. Using a fun sticker or stamp, mark off the areas you visit and the animals you see. This not only keeps kids engaged, but serves as a nice keepsake of your trip. You can make your own passport by searching online for free printables, or visit this site for a free template.
