Our Experience With This Fun Farm Animal Bowling Game

Most toddlers go through an animal farm phase. They moo at everything. It’s probably because the “M” sounds is an easy one to imitate!

I’ve been working on the animals in Spanish with my kids.  We’ve been studying how different animals sound and how to say each animal in Spanish. There’s also a fun Spanish version of  Old Macdonald.

The animals were made from toilet paper roll tubes which made them easy to stack on top of each other.  I didn’t want to paint the tp tubes, so I just covered them in construction paper. It was definitely easy peasy activity to whip up.
