"One year it was pirates and we ended the week with a day long water fight extravaganza.Three years ago it was butterflies joined with planting butterfly flowers,crafts, and a field trip to a live butterfly exhibit," she writes.
This year her lessons plans focus on the rainforest. Here are some of the ways she uses her Safari Limited toys:
- For animal recognition. She uses the figurines to show the kids the different animals and teach them about which part of the rainforest they live in.
- To add a hands-on element to the lesson. The kids not only see the animals, but can pick them up and study the details of them.

- Encouraging imaginative play. The kids love to play with the figurines, creating their own stories for the animals.
