100 days of play and some imaginative floor play for kids

We’re big fans of animals and have a box that we brought down our car mat and set up a mini safari for the animals. Our animal’s come with some vets and park rangers (especially for my brother who worked as a Park Ranger in the USA).

With the animals in their own pens it was open to J and T’s imagination to take it where they wanted.

The crocodile escaped and was captured by the vet and animal keeper.

Our visitors on the safari ranged from princesses to characters from In the Night Garden – I just love the way that children can find a way that they are just accepted.

  1. Where did you get that fabulous rug from? Love the idea of a safari!!

  2. This is great timing! My little girl only has a panda&a horse right now which does not a safari/zoo make, but I’m waiting on a delivery of a job lot from eBay,looking forward to trying this

  3. Yes, I think if we were to enjoy a floor safari, there most definitely would be a princess. I think a dinosaur or two would join in the fun as well! Such a fun activity. Love, love, love your play mat!! It is perfect, but I love that this activity could just as easily be enjoyed without it. Thanks for sharing in our 100 Days of Play! Happy to have Rainy Day Mum joining us! Your post has been linked up and shared. 🙂

  4. I was a little worried about how the princess was going to fair with all those animals on the loose. What a fun way to play!
