They come in all shapes and sizes but one thing they all have in common is that mammal moms make milk to feed their babies, like humans!
They don’t lay eggs (except for the platypus and the spiny anteater)
Fun fact : The bat is the only mammal that really flies.
Activity: Match the letter with the animal
Ask your child what is the name of this animal, for example : dog. What is the first letter in the word D-O-G? Make the sound of the letter 'D'. Then your child will stick the letter D sticker next to the dog sticker.
All the stickers here are mammals. I didn‘t use all the letters in the alphabet.
Activity: Mammal footprints
Put some play-doh in front of each foot print they ask your child to guess to which animal this footprint belongs. She/he can then make the footprint in the play-doh.
Here are the footprints I used but you could use different ones depending on the animals toys you have.
Here is a link to print at home:
