This week’s Camp Au Pair theme is Backyard Safari.
Crafts, recipes, activities, and games can all be found here on the Camp Au Pair – Backyard Safari pinboard.
Field Trips can be a great way for kids to learn and have new experiences. While we don’t have any animal safari parks near us, we are fortunate to live near two of the top zoos in the United States.
Videos – Look for fun videos about African animals on YouTube.
Webcams – You can do a google search for websites with webcams that allow you to observe nature.
- Explore.org has lots of nature webcams including African Safari
- San Diego Zoo Webcams
- Houston Zoo Webcams
Books – Dear Zoo, Rumble in the Jungle, and Giraffes Can’t Dance all fit this week’s theme.
Stop by your local library to look for these and other books on animals you might find on a safari or in the zoo.
