As I said yesterday the book Animal Boogie is one of our current favourites and I have been wanting to do an activity with it for a while. So inspired by Toddler Approved’s post for the Virtual Book Club for the Very Quiet Cricket to create some movement cards to go with the book and CD.

We have been playing this with the CD in the order that they are in the book but T is a fan of mixing it up and selecting the cards that I have printed out and getting us to do the actions – she’s trying to mimic them and causing both J and I to laugh a lot with the T versions of the activities.

I thought about laminating the cards but I haven’t got around to that yet instead I have printed onto some card stock – I ended up printing it out 3 times so that we could mix it all up and get some repetition if need be.
