Children aged three and up have the natural tendency to love animals. One reason is their early development that increases the level of curiosity. The way animals move makes them curious one thing that drives their interests toward staring and touching pets. Unlike trees and flowers, animals have many more features that are interesting to kids. While looking at an animal, children can be fascinated at what and how it eats. A child can be enthusiastic about how a frog can quickly extend its tongue to catch its prey, and how an elephant reaches with a long trunk to pick a bundle of hay for a meal.
Kids are crazy about wildlife! Even the least appealing creatures in reality such as mice, rats, bears, and pigs can stimulate their passion toward animals. Children can stare at snakes slithering along or a worm wiggling its way under the ground without having any strange and freaky feeling. Almost all children, due to their love for wildlife, tend to act like animals. Kids attempt to flap their arms like how birds flap their wings. Notice how they squeal and make animal sounds like the “moooooooo” from the cows and “rooooaaar” from the lions.
During Halloween or at the children’s party, animal costumes are the favorites. Females wear wings to look like butterflies, while males wear character headpiece to act as dragons, lions, or bears. If you check out children boutiques in the malls including online shops for children, you can find a lot of animal inspired outfits perfect for attending parties. Kids are truly devoted to animals, although many of them may not extend their devotion until adulthood. Children see their pets as peers, of a sort. As they age and learn more complex things, they tend to lessen their animal consciousness.However, it is recommended that parents or guardians aside from the teachers should support the children’s love of animals. This is the perfect time for helping kids in widening their knowledge. At a very young age, it has been found out that a child’s brain development is at its highest.
