African animals from a tube

Both our kids like animals, especially 3.5-yr-old L. We have quite of a few animals "from the tube", one of those globe-capped little plastic tubes (about $10) with small plastic animals. The kids play with them regularly, mostly by moving them around in cars, putting them in jars, and so forth. As part of my plan to find interesting new ways of playing with the same toys, this was tonight' activity (for my older, L.): we took out the set with African animals (giraffe, gorilla, lion, etc), IKEA's huge Picture Atlas for Children, and asked him to match animals with pictures. Another 10 minutes occupied. Hooray.
