These farm crafts and activities help kids learn about farm animals, farmers, tractors, fall produce and scarecrows.
I designed the following activities to help make learning about farms simple, educational and fun!
Farm Animal Activities
There are heaps of cute farm crafts you can make, either out of craft materials or using a template. The templates I designed are great for for kids who need extra cutting practice and for those busy days when prep time is limited! I usually mix activities up, so I may do a directed drawing for the pig craft and then use a template for the sheep.
Preparation – Choose a farm animal to focus on. Print the craft template and a worksheet activity.
Crafts – Paint the animal template and allow it to dry. Cut around the animal with scissors. Then decorate it with relevant materials such as feathers or cotton wool.
Worksheets – You can choose from a labeling, describing or writing worksheet. I usually pick one worksheet to do per animal, but you can do more if you like.
Display Tip – Get an A3 sheet of paper. Attach the animal craft to the top half and the worksheet to the bottom half.
Farm Animal Crafts
Kids can make a cow, horse, sheep, pig, hen or duck. All you need is the template and a few craft materials such as scissors, paint, glue and googly eyes.
Topic 1 – Sheep
Kids can research each animal using the “let’s learn about” worksheet shown above. I usually get out some animal books from the library, so kids can find some animal facts to write in the boxes.
Then they can complete the short quiz and practice writing the animal word.
Topic 2 – Horses
Kids who are beginning to write more, can use the writing worksheets.
Kids can choose an animal to research. First, they need to write three facts about that animal in the boxes provided. After that, they can use the facts to write a few sentences about what they discovered.
Topic 3 – Cows
The labeling worksheets are great for developing vocabulary. Kids need to name each part and glue the correct label next to it.
Topic 4 – Pigs
Topic 6 – Ducks
Fall On The Farm
In this unit, kids get to learn about what farmers do and how crops grow. They also learn about tractors and scarecrows!
I find it helpful to teach kids that there are different types of farmers. The worksheet shown above explores four types of farmers and what they do.
Topic 2 – Tractors
Labeling a tractor is a fun activity to do as part of a farm or transport theme.
Topic 3 – Pumpkins
Labeling a pumpkin is a great activity for science, Halloween or fall.
Topic 4 – Apples
The apple activities are relevant to a farm or fall theme. The apple labeling worksheet is also useful for science.
Topic 5 – Corn
The corn activities are relevant to a farm or fall theme. The corn labeling worksheet is also useful for science.
Topic 6 – Scarecrows
The scarecrow activities are great to do as part of a farm or fall theme. You can make the scarecrow in a few different ways. Kids can paint the template or use collage materials such as scrap fabric.
