Farm Animal Preschool Activities and Printables

Farm animals preschool and kindergarten activities, crafts, and games

Farm animals activities, crafts, games, and printables for preschool and kindergarten. Celebrate the new life of spring with this theme on baby animals born on the farm. Children engage in a series of activities, games, songs, and rhymes centered on baby animal vocabulary: chick, duckling, lamb, bunny, puppy, kitten, foal, calf, piglet, and kid. The felt story "Are You My Mom?" is a great way to introduce children to these terms. This theme is a natural tie-in to our At the Farm activities. In addition, children learn the sounds farm animals make along the way.
