Alphabet Animals

Can you be every animal in the kingdom from A to Z?


How to play

Become the animals!

  • Get a pen and piece of paper and write down the 26 letters of the alphabet
  • List an animal for each of the letters of the alphabet - So A for Alligator, B for Bear, C for Cat etc.
  • Take it in turns to act and make the noise of the animal
  • Use clothing and other things in the house to help. e.g. on four legs roaring with a tea towel (clean) on your head - this is a lion


Anyone can do this. The aim is to act the animals, making noises is fine or even drawing the animals is fine

Why not try?

  • Doing this activity with another person in the house
  • For parents and children over 13 years of age: Filming the activity on your phone and see what other families are doing. You can post on Twitter @JoinUsMovePlay or Facebook #JUMPAtHome
Suitable For Ages 3 - 8

Time taken 20-40 minutes
You will need
  • Pen
  • Paper
  • Other things in the house for your animals e.g. a rolled-up towel for the elephants’ trunk
Safety As with any activity consider the space e.g. may need to move tables and chairs
Challenge Move every part of your body – could you do a quick round of each animal as fast as you can and have a race and see who wins?
