Do your preschoolers love farm animals as much as ours? Seriously, we could do farm activities all year long! I think that’s why putting together this collection of 50 preschool farm theme activities was so much fun. There’s so much out there!
After a visit to a local farm in the fall, we plan a farm theme with our preschoolers. There are so many fun learning activities that are associated with the farm. While planning our curriculum, I came across over 50 activities, books and songs that are perfect for the farm theme. The activities are hands-on and involve multiple skills and can be adapted to different learning levels. They also involve all 5 senses!
What are your favorite farm activities? Please let me know in the comments section!
