Horses, cows, and pigs… oh my! It’s a farm full of paper animals for your little ones to create and enjoy! My kids love visiting the farm animals at our local farms. But when you can’t make a trip to the farm, these fun crafts are a great way to bring the farm to you!
All these adorable “build an animal” crafts included:
Great Playtime Activities with their New Friends:
Keep scrolling to get your very own farm animal craft pack. After your kids have created their very own foxes, chicks, and rabbits, enjoy some play time with these great ideas:
– Build a habitat! Where do foxes live? What do rabbits like to eat? Can you draw a mud puddle for the pig? These are all great questions that are sure to get your kids thinking about farm animal habitats! With a few old shoeboxes, you can create habitats for your farm animal creations.
– Animal workout! Exercise like your favorite animal! It’s a great way to get kids moving and learn about the animals you’ve built. Physical activity increases strength in muscles and bones and can even improve concentration. Exercise is an important part of your child’s development. Use this craft pack to build your very own horse and then gallop around the room, learn to hop like a rabbit, or roll around “in the mud” like a pig. This fun activity is sure to cause lots of giggles!
– What do farm animals eat? One way to encourage children to make healthy food choices is to make it fun! Having a snack with your new farm animal friends is lots of fun. My kids enjoy eating carrot sticks with their bunnies, oatmeal cookies with their horses, and drinking milk with their cows. Can you think of other farm animal related snacks? Share your ideas in the comments!
– Story time! Reading to my children is one of my absolute favorite things to do with them. Why not read a story all about animals on the farm and use your fun farm animal creations to help you tell the tale? Here are some of our favorite farm stories:
- Click, Clack, Moo! Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin
- Big Red Barn by Margaret Wise Brown
- Barnyard Dance! by Sandra Boynton
