Male and Female animal folder

Our latest folder is this Male and Female animal name folder using the lovely cards from Twinkl.  My kids really loved the Animal and their Young folder so I wanted to try to build on that interest.  The Animal and their young folder was such a hit  that it is now permanently upstairs in the kid’s bedroom as the kids are constantly using it to “teach ” their toys.

The Male and Female cards that I used are part of the platinum package from Twinkl.

I started off my sticking all the female animal name cards onto the folder.

Then I stuck the male card on top using some sticky tape.  I only stuck it on the left side so that the kids could open it up and see the matching male and female animals cards.

Very easy, just some cutting and sticking and it is all complete.  Quick and easy to put together.

And the kids ?  My daughter started looking at the folder first and straight away called her younger brother over.

The only downside is it prompted them asking me a bunch of questions about other animals which I could not answer.  But that is what the internet is for and we all ended up learning a few new words.
