HUMAN FROZEN TREAT ENRICHMENT
|GALLOPING ZEBRA PUPPET! Have fun on any flat surface by creating your own zebra finger puppet! The full "recipe" can be found HERE, but you can also use things you have already at home. Be creative! And if you use recycled items, even better! For instance, use a marker instead of paint... tape instead of glue... and if you don't have the exact hole punch size, trace around a lipstick top and use your scissors!|

Have them recreate their favorite zoo animals (using any of our photos from the Jackson Zoo Instagram or Facebook pages) and then snap a photo before they disappear! You can even send us your faves, we’ll post about them!
|MAKE YOUR OWN MOJO
