Schleich animals are a favorite around here. We have 2 of their sharks and they are so realistic, perfect for pretend play and learning about sharks.
Shark Week Activities and Crafts for Toddlers:
All you need is a bin, some water, some fish, and some sharks, and you have a fun and functional activity for your toddler! Ask your toddler to feed the sharks a certain color fish, arrange the fish in matching groups, practice counting, and talk about what sharks like to eat with one fun and easy activity. Provide a scoop or net to add some fine motor practice to the mix if desired!here!
