Farm Animal Activities for Kids (Lessons, Crafts and More)

Farm Animal Activities

Living in Vermont, my kids have always been very aware of farms and farm animals. We have cows, chickens, sheep and more all within walking distance because we’re in a rural area. So, we’ve visited quite a few times because they’re so close.

Of course, one of the best farm animal activities you can do is pack the kids up and head out to a farm to experience it yourself. Thankfully, we have several farms in the area that are open to visitors. And, our elementary school regularly takes the kids on field trips to local farms because it’s loads of fun.

So, there are a variety of different activities below that you can try. Most are suitable for preschool through early elementary aged children. A few may require a bit of help with cutting skills depending on your child’s developmental level. And, there are a few for older elementary aged kids because they need to have fun too! Finally, you’ll want to grab a craft smock before using paints just in case.
