Teach Toddlers About Animals and the Environment with Games

Teach Toddlers About Animals and the Environment with Games

Posted by Andrea Elliott on Apr 7th 2021

All games in our My Very First Games series were designed with toddlers in mind. From the chunky pieces and vibrant colors to the simple, easy to learn rules.

Several of these games involve things like gardening, bees, picking fruit, animals and fishing. All of which can be used as learning tools and practical examples of animals, nature and how the environment is interconnected. Below is a list of toddler games, how they relate to animals and the environment, and what the game teaches. We've also included video overviews, so you can get a clear idea of what each game is really like!
