Families on Mission

Play and Learn Chilean Animals

Sharing God's love together is sure to ignite a lifelong passion for missions in your family! Use these resources at home to reinforce what preschoolers are learning at church. Talking about and praying for missionaries will spark creative ideas for helping others in your own community.  

WMU has developed resources that can help your family reach out to others.

Chilean Animals

Plan a family trip to your local zoo or search for information on some of the animals of Chile online. For a good start, check out Awesome Native Animals you Must See in Chile.

Print out this sheet for your child to take with you (or use with your tablet “zoo” visit). Allow your child to pick his favorite color of crayon to take with you.

As you are looking at all of the animals at the zoo, have your child circle the animal on the page when he locates it. Point out that only some of the zoo animals live in Chile. After your preschooler finds the animal, say: God made ______.
