Trips to the zoo are fun and educational, so an annual zoo membership is the perfect gift to keep them entertained and keep your wallet happy! You may also get discounts on products in the park as well as feeding experiences or food/drink.
Puzzles and Jigsaws
You can build on your child’s fine motor skills and concentration abilities with a couple of animal-themed jigsaws or puzzles. They’re also an activity you can do together or something your child can do as a quiet activity on a rainy afternoon.
What could be better for a little animal lover than transforming their bedroom into a whole new habitat? From farmyard scenes to jungle adventures, you can decorate your child’s room with stickers and wall art of their favorite animals or take it a step further and re-paint walls and update the carpet. It’s the perfect place to play!
Books, Books and More Books!
Whether your child would enjoy an encyclopedia or information books dedicated to their favorite animal or storybooks based around the creatures they love. Books are always a great gift for children of any age.
Sponsor an Animal

Not only that, but your child will receive all this in the mail each month which is something for them to look forward to!
