- Gather all stuffed animals and place them all around the room (or house), maybe hiding a few.
- Bring baby doll along for the trip.
- Grab a piece of paper to be the zoo map.
- Grab some play money for admission.
- Have a petting zoo corner.
- Feed the animals. We used a paper towel roll as a food machine. Ava dropped a play coin down the top of the tube while I held the bottom. Then I told her to put her hand underneath to catch the food, and when I moved my hand, she caught the coin (magically transformed into food, of course).
- Have fun visiting the zoo!
