Farm Craft for Kids


Make a Farm Book!

Farmer, Farmer, What do you see?

For the total book you will need — pages of construction paper of your choice. This will be the main pages to the book. Your child will create different farm animals and they will be placed on these pages. You will need to write at the TOP of each page…
Farmer, Farmer, What do you see?
At the BOTTOM of each page you will need to write…
I see a ________ looking at me. (Fill in the animal on the pages in blank)

You can connect these pages many different ways either in a binder, punch holes in paper and tie back with yarn or connect with rings. Choose what works best for you.

Let your child use the water colors to paint the picture of the farmer. I recommend that you take the black and brown out.

Q-Tips
Yellow Paint

Let your child paint the picture of the hen using the q-tips and the yellow paint.

*Ask your child what the picture is, if they say hen call it a hen. If they say chicken call it a chicken.*

Horse

Different shades of Brown and Tan Crayons AND Colored Pencils

Let your child enjoy using the different kinds of coloring instruments to color the horse and her mare. It is important to supply different things for our kids to use while they do their art projects. This we inspire them to be more creative.

Goat
Print out the goat picture

Old Toothbrush
Gray Paint
Paint Smock

Have your child dip the toothbrush into gray paint next over the goat picture rub your finger on the toothbrush bristles. This will cause the paint to shack off the toothbrush onto your goat picture.

Your child has now created many farm animals cut each one out and glue them to the construction paper you chose before you began. Add the wording to your book and create the book explained above.

Charlotte’s Web

Determined to save her friend, Charlotte spins a web that reads “Some Pig,” convincing the farmer and surrounding community that Wilbur is no ordinary animal and should be saved.

    I like the image that can be printed. I can use them to teach my 3 year old how to paint, the ony thing is that you need more samples to print.

    Thanks
