Help your preschooler learn animal names and sounds with this Who lives on the farm spinner craft!
This farm animal craft is a great tool for little ones to learn some of the animals that live on the farm. Once you’re done with the craft, talk about other animals. Make a list and see how many animals you can come up with.
It’s an easy coloring craft for preschoolers and older kids. You can use it in the classroom, if you are a teacher, or at home with your kiddos. You don’t need much for it but it will keep little ones engaged for a while.
With just paper, colored pencils or markers, scissors and glue, you can create a game for kids to learn names and sounds of common farm friends.
The cover of the “Who lives on the farm?” spinner craft features a barn on one side and a smiling sun over a fence – yes, there is a happy day on the farm.
The spinner reveals five of the animals that you will find while visiting a farm:
The template comes with two options: one with words on both cover and spinner and one without, in case you want to let the kids write the name of the farm animals or you want to use the craft with another language than English.
This craft was inspired by our “Who lives in the ocean?” spinner craft.
