As part of a science lesson or just for fun, this animal habitat activity is simple to set up and can be used in a variety of ways!

Start with:

  • Cardboard
  • Bowl
  • Pencil or Pen
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Small Plastic Animal Toys

Create it!:

Step 1: Using the bowl, trace a circle on cardboard. Cut out the circle. Repeat for as many habitats as you would like. We made three.

Step 2: Paint the cardboard circles for each habitat. For example, blue for water, green for jungle, brown for farm, etc. All the paint to dry.

Step 3: Set out the circles, along with animals. Ask your preschooler to sort the animalsl by habitat, shape, color or any other characteristic!
