They say that we can absorb more information (in percentage of time) by the time we are 3 years old, then the rest of our years. It is super important to teach our children as much as we can in their early years; as it is amazing just how much they can absorb. This Montessori inspired activity uses mini wild animals (that you can find at the dollar store for next to nothing) to play a matching game with printable cards. The activity is great for children up to 3 years old. Laminate the cards for extra durability.
