Animal Games for Kids
Hm... Something seems to be wrong here. Does a dog have that kind of paws? Can a hippo have those legs? Help the animals to match them with the correct body parts. This play practices recognizing and matching shapes, along with perception.
Do dogs have paws like those? Can a hippo have those legs? This is an incredibly fun and challenging game from a perceptive point of view. The game player is to match the correct animal with the correct body parts. This game builds up and puts into place many advantages for the child.
The game is a simple concept – the animal appears on the screen and depending on which body they click on, the shape and colour changes to a different animal, or even the matching animal. It is a very interactive piece of play and here is what your child will learn from playing this animal game…
At first, the game will test the child’s perception. It will see whether or not the player is able to match the right body parts. This is a scientific exploration and still keeps the entertaining edge to it. Due to the fact the some of the animals parts look similar, for example the dog and the skunk both have long uprising tails and can be mixed and matched with one another. However the child will learn skills of recognition and how to match the right body parts and colours. This will not only test their knowledge of animals and what they look like but also why certain parts will not work with others.
Next, from a scientific point of view it allows the child to see that animals are not much different to us humans. They also have two eyes, a nose and a mouth which also means they can taste, smell and touch just like us! The animals are constantly smiling and the setting is extremely colourful with rainbows and blue skies setting the imagery for the child; a happy and encouraging setting.
When the animals are matched correctly, they jump up and down with delight which will trigger the child’s feelings letting the player know that they have succeeded in the game.
The child will take these skills obtained and begin to apply their education to their academic life when approaching scientific obstacles. It is a game which exercises the quantitative and the creative parts of the brain. Creatively, the infant develops the ability to mix and match the colours, the body parts and all features. From a more calculated perspective, the child understands the body parts and visualises the animals and their body parts. It causes the child to ask why a hippo cannot have paws as such, or why the dog cannot have legs that big. They create the ability to understand why a certain animal cannot have this body part as not only does it look odd (creative) but it also would not work and the animal may fall over(scientific).
