Flannel Friday: What Do You Call a Baby...?

 Last November, I used author/illustrator Aaron Zenz as a storytime theme. I love his book Chuckling Ducklings and Baby Animal Friends. When he also published a book about animal moms and another about animal dads, I knew it would make a perfect storytime.

The idea for this magnet board activity was born out of desperation. I was looking for an activity and realized I had crocheted magnets of 5 of the different animals mentioned in Chuckling Ducklings and Baby Animal Friends: turkey, frog, bear, owl, and cat.

After reading the book, this activity works as a memory game. Some of the animals' baby names are easy (bear & cat), but the others are a little harder (turkey, frog, owl).

You can easily make a set for this activity by borrowing animals from your other sets.

Kathryn has the roundup this week.
