What you need:

Older kids can choose a name on one of the cards, read it, then find that animal and also spell the name of the animal.

Younger kids can simply find the matching animal friends, or only look for the beginning sound of the names of the animals.


A simple busy box, but guarenteed to be fun, AND with an educational twist too!
