Farm Animal Activities
As many of you know by now I m a mom of 3 little tigers and we live on a farm in Bavaria, Germany. From birth on all of my children are obsessed with our farm and everything that comes with it.
From all the different animals to the big tractors and harvesters. Every day the kids go for a bulldog ride with their grandfather and while walking they visit all neighbor farmers to see their animals as well.
During the different seasons, my kids learn naturally when to plant the fields, how the different crops grow and when they will be harvested, and what the different field fruits are used for. We used to have bulls but now only hold pigs.
They help their grandfather to feed them and see them grow. We visit the cow farm next door and just recently were part of their corn harvest which they turned into cow food for the rest of the year.
My children are fortunate to learn through everyday life, they get the chance to see, feel, and participate. Nevertheless, you don’t need to have a farm at home to learn about farm animals and farming.
Just simply use the next nice weekend to visit a nearby farm, petting zoo or even many big pumpkin patches have farm animals during the fall.

Farm Animal Books
After or prior to such fun family activities we love to go to the library and pick them related books so we can talk about what we saw or will see and end the weekend with a theme-related fun kids craft, STEM activity, or art project.
Here our favorite farm-related books:
The first and most fun farm animal-related activity is by far feeding the animals.
Let’s be honest nothing will brighten your child’s day more than to get the chance to see the animals in real and be able to touch them and feed them.
Nevertheless, there might not be a chance to do that right now, therefore here some do at home farm animals projects and ideas for kids.
The full step by step instructions of every activity can be found by clicking on the project title. Enjoy!
