Going On A Big and Fascinating African Safari

This month in our Mother Goose Time curriculum our theme has been Going On Safari. The boys have really enjoyed using our African Safari sensory bin this month, it has been such a fun sensory idea for the kids. At the beginning of our unit the boys had a great time making a Safari hat and then going on an African safari looking for animals. Fascinating African Safari

Safari Hats

The boys worked hard to make their African Safari hats. Ethan decided he was not cutting his tissue paper and glued the entire thing on his hat. He found a paw print stamper marker we had and the boys used that on their hats as well. It was really a perfect thing to add to their hats. Going On A African Safari-1 Gabe very carefully cut each of the pieces of tissue paper up and glued them onto his safari hat.

Going On An African Safari

First the boys were given money “fake money.” They had to use it to pay for their African safari tickets. I had set up our manipulatives “aka African animals” along with animal pictures in a circle. We had to do it in the kitchen which isn’t real big, but the boys didn’t mind anyway.Going On A African Safari-1 Each time they passed an animal they had to cross it off of their African Safari ticket.Going On A African Safari-1 Going On A African Safari-1 Going On A African Safari-1 They finished the safari when they had every box checked off of their tickets.

  1. How fun is this. A safari sure sounds like an adventure. I loved the hats. The ticket ideas sounds grand. I love that learning is creative and that kiddos are not in desks all day. Boys love a little challenge and moving around. 🙂

    • Thank you!! We sure did have fun on our safari!! The hats were a lot of fun to make, and the boys have worn them over and over since we made them. Boys need to get out of their seats at any age, but especially when they are little. We try to always make learning fun and exciting, but it is always a job to balance it with 6 kids. Thanks so much for stopping by, have a blessed week!!
