A new series that I like is Kallie Goerge’s Magical Animal Adoption Agency. The first book is titled Clover’s Luck. I thought it would be different to make our own magical balloon animals and run them through an obstacle course.
The first activity was pet-themed stories, but I honestly can’t remember what we read.
Next we created magical balloon puppies. These are super simple as they are balloons, sharpie marker, and construction paper and a string.
When the balloon animals were done the kids ran them through an obstacle course. There was a slide, a stage for doing a trick, a tunnel to crawl through, cones to maneuver around, etc.
After the obstacle course is completed we filled out special adoption certificates so the kids could take their balloon puppies home.
