How the Animals Got Their Tails

How the Animals got their Tails

Have you ever wondered how the animals got their tails? And why the guinea pig hasn’t got one…?

Play:

  • Can you make tails for any of your soft toys which don’t have one?
  • Have a go at your own version of “pin the tail on the donkey” – draw your animal and  do some blindfolded ‘drawing’ on a tail….

Arts and crafts: 

  • Tail making! Can you make yourselves tails using whatever you have at home?
  • You could make yourself a pet guinea pig…

Watching: 

Reading:

  • ‘Animals with tails’ feels like an easy win of a reading basket for a bit of post-lunch reading! 

Active:

– You can hop like the rabbit, scuttle like a guinea pig and see what else you can muster up in an animal/cardio circuit workout!

  • You could shake your tails and do some dancing along to your favourite tunes too. 

 

Educational (probably best for slightly older kids):

  • Search for ‘guinea pig’ on twinkl and you’ll find some reading comprehension on guinea pig care, fact files and some guinea pig themed subtraction resources…
