Animal Action Dice

I made these using Caleb’s building toys. We took turns rolling them and acting out feelings and making animal sounds. This was a fun way to teach feelings and play pretend at the same time!

Here’s Caleb as a surprised tiger.

Another way we do animal actions is by using this book by Karen Pandell and Art Wolfe.

It has wonderfully clear pictures of animals and children imitating them. Easy for Caleb to “read” and copy even when I’m busy doing other things.

How about you, what do you like to do for pretend play with your kids? Any recommendations? I would love to hear from you!
