Learning guide

Playing with the soft coloured felt should make this an exciting sensory experience for your little one. Plus, the physical aspects of drawing, cutting, and sticking the llama’s features to the sock helps to develop children’s fine motor skills. You could also get more out of this activity by getting your child to put on a puppet show, with their llama in the starring role. Or look up some cool facts about llamas – did you know one of the ways they communicate is by humming?
