Three Fun Easy Farm Crafts for Preschool


Three Fun Easy Farm Crafts for Preschool
Autumn is such a great time to celebrate the harvest and learn about how food is produced.  You can take your children on field trips ro apple orchards, country fairs, and pumpkin patches.  We have been doing some of these things and I wanted some fun easy crafts to go along with all of these great active opportunities!  We made a funky rooster, a pig, and a nice soft lamb. Also, don't miss the tractor painting process activity that I posted last week!

Making the Rooster Craft with Your Preschooler

Materials:

  • construction paper (we used red and green)
  • craft feathers (all we had was pink, use red or yellow for a more natural, but decidedly less funky, rooster)
  • glue
  • scissors
  • pencil
  • a rooster template or shape (I used this one resized)

Directions: 

Print out your template (or cut it out freehand, if you are more artistically able than I). Trace the rooster on one of your sheets of construction paper.  Cut it out.  Gather your materials.

Provide your child with the rooster cut out, liquid glue, and the feathers.  Let them have fun gluing on the feathers.  When they are finished they can glue the rooster onto the second sheet of construction paper.  Allow the finished product to dry and enjoy!

Making the Sheep with Your Preschooler

Materials:

  • construction paper (we used white for the sheep and green for the background)
  • cotton balls (they were rather large, so I broke them up into about 2 or 3 smaller pieces)
  • glue
  • scissors
  • pencil
  • a sheep template or shape (I used this one resized)

Directions:

Print out your template, trace it onto a sheet of your construction paper, and cut it out.  Gather your materials.

Set up your child with the sheep, glue and cotton balls.  Let them glue the cotton balls onto the sheep.  Talk about the texture of the sheep.  Allow the whole craft to dry and hang it up somewhere to enjoy.

Making the Pig with Your Preschooler

Materials:

  • paper plate
  • pink paint
  • paintbrush
  • pink construction paper
  • pink button
  • googly eyes
  • pink yarn
  • glue

Directions:

This is the most involved of the three crafts.  We did this craft in two stages spread across two days (one for painting and one for gluing).  To get ready, cut out two small triangles from the construction paper and cut a small section of yarn for the pig's mouth.

Painting her paper plate farm pig craft


Provide the plate, paint, and paintbrush.  Let them paint the face of their pig.  When they are done set aside the craft and allow it to dry completely.

When the paint is completely dry, set up the gluing half of the craft.  Provide your child with the painted plate, googly eyes, button, yarn, and glue.  (You could also skip the googly eyes and replace them with cut out circles to make this craft into a mask).  Allow them to arrange their pig's face.  Allow to dry and enjoy!
