Curious George worked with The Humane Society of the United States to produce 5 easy tips (PDF) to keep your pet safe, healthy, and happy.
A trip to the zoo is fun and educational, but there are also many opportunities closer to home to explore and observe animals. Use Exploring the World of Animals (PDF) to look for animals in your neighborhood, including birds and insects, and to get reading recommendations. George's Butterfly Hide-and-Seek (PDF) activity sheet lets you color a butterfly to blend in with a background your child chooses. And in Act Like an Animal! (PDF) you can help your child make a "critter catcher" and then imitate the movements and sounds of different animals.
Dance is a great way for kids to get exercise, express their creativity, communicate feelings, and enjoy music. Download Dance Party with Curious George (PDF) or Un bailango con Jorge el curioso (PDF) and join in the fun! Plus, learn more about the importance of dance in Exercise Your Creativity (PDF), written by children's physical activity specialist Rae Pica.
Just like George, children are curious about the world and how things work. Do these simple activities at home and have fun making discoveries together. To get the most out of these activities, take a quick peek at these helpful tips. Choose a topic to get started:
Earth Day, Arbor Day, the first day of spring... Any time of the year can be a great time to celebrate and explore earth science. Play outside, learn about nature, and get a little greener!
