Animal Finger Puppets
This is one of the wonderful, unplanned activities that took me by surprise. I was putting away a few stray animal finger puppets when my little helper came over to see what I was doing.
He makes a few mistakes in identifying the puppets. Part of that is due to seeing some of them for the first time and part is due to his developing abilities in the area of classification. We had the same issues when we visited Sea World. He would look at an animal and want to name it but he didn't have a name for it yet and couldn't classify many of them. He was really thrown off by seals which barked like dogs but swam like fish!
