A-G Animals for Young Beginners

Happy 4th of July!  Today, America celebrates Independence Day.  My parents have come over to visit us and see our new place, and we have a fun day of activities planned.  :)

My husband and I are still exploring our new town and figuring out where things are.  It’s kind of fun!!  :)  Last week, I visited the local Goodwill store and found a bunch of Beanie Babies in really good condition for just 50 cents each.  I’m such a sucker for thrift stores and consignment shops!  I managed to find an animal for each letter of the musical alphabet except for “F”…I guess I need to find a frog, perhaps?!  :)

You’ll notice I have more than one beanie animal for “C”.  I simply couldn’t make up my mind.

Once I find that elusive frog for “F”, then I just need to get a floor staff!  I have a few ideas for making a floor staff myself.  We’ll see what happens during the upcoming weeks/months.  I can’t wait to plan some games for my young beginner students using these furry friends.  :)

  1. Love this! Will definitely use this idea with teaching my little ones! And yes, thrift stores are fantastic for finding treasures!

  2. I’m working on a floor staff, too – I’m really excited about the idea. I went to the fabric store and found some vinyl on clearance (like a flannel backed tablecloth). I tried to glue black strips to a gold background, but my glue didn’t hold! I may have to break out the sewing machine. I also got some white to make piano keys. Fun! Can’t wait to hear how you make it.
