Animal-focused activities for the young (and young at heart)

Looking for a little fun? Join Best Friends for free animal-themed activities, streamed right from our Facebook and Instagram pages and YouTube channel. Check out the list of activities and schedules below and join us for as many or as few as you’d like.

Kids yoga

Have fun stretching in animal poses! Bring your favorite stuffed animal and get ready to pose like a lion, camel, bunny and more. Don’t forget your yoga mat or blanket.

Art with the animals

Let your artistic side flow and learn how to draw or paint real (and imaginary) animals. A few furry friends from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary will join us for each class. You’ll need acrylic paint or crayons and markers, a pencil, art paper or canvas, a water cup, paper plate, towel and paint brushes (if painting).

I read with animals

Curl up on the couch for story time! Spend about 15 minutes listening to a wonderful animal story while snuggling with your pets or your stuffed animals. Perfect for kids ages 2 to 7.

Fun animal lessons and interviews

Join us to learn all kinds of cool facts about the animals and hear straight from the pros about how you can help care for them, as well as other valuable information about the pets you love.
