Our continent boxes are coming together nicely. I'm so excited about the idea of making our learning about other cultures as hands on as possible. I have a plastic shoebox for each continent and we are collecting money, postcards, and more from each continent. These animals are a great addition to our boxes.
Safari Ltd actually sent us four Toobs to get started with! The Land Down Under and Coral Reef, (for our Australia box), Penguins (Antarctica), and Wild (Africa). The girls had a blast opening them up and looking through them all. The mom and baby koala and kangaroo were favorites of course. They are adorable:
The Land Down Under:
Each Toob contains 10-12 different figures, each with their name printed on their underside. In this photo, I think I am being attacked by an alligator:
We've already purchased several more sets to use when we study different continents. I used 40% off coupons to get them at Michael's and Hobby Lobby. I like that these are tested to strict European standards and are phthalate free. I can see us collecting animals for the sandbox, to create a farm scene with, and more...
