Farm Activities for Toddlers

Why not share this post!

We are loving the toddler farm activities and farm crafts! I've yet to meet a toddler (or any child really) that doesn't love the farm, which is why we've put together a fun collection of easy farm activities for toddlers.

With a mix of sensory play, crafts and activities, your one, two or three year old will love these fun farm activities.

Farm Activities for Toddlers

Does your toddler love the farm as much as mine did? These farm crafts and activities will definitely keep them busy.

Would you like a planned weekly activity guide with a Farm theme? Get your free copy HERE.

I love to have a theme going when we do crafts, and try to pair these activities with my favorite toddler farm books too.  If you're in search of some classic farm toys you can't go past this farm set and these farm animals. 

Some more easy farm activities for toddlers are:

We reached out to our Facebook Group for some of their toddler farm activities and I know that you'll love these ideas as much as I do!

Farm Week Shelf Setup

A great way to setup your toddler space for a themed week is with a shelf setup.

These normally include easily accessible books, toys and puzzles related to the theme. Vanessa shared this farm shelf setup with us.

Liz shared her farm setup with us as well. You can see she has some farm puzzles, a small farm sensory bin, some playdough with farm playdough cutters and of course some farm books too!

Rescue the Farm Animal

Aimee shared this fun and easy toddler farm activity idea - tape your farm animals to a board or mat (masking tape works well) and then have them 'rescue' them.

Farm Playdough Tray

This is a fun and easy farm animal playdough tray to set up.

Let your toddler explore the footprints that the animals make and then encourage pretend play as the animals interact with each other.

Cotton Ball Wooly Sheep Craft

Use a toilet paper cardboard roll (or a craft roll) and cover it with cotton balls. Add some craft sticks for legs (painted black) and use construction paper for the face. Thanks to Rebecca for sharing this sheep craft with us.

Washing the Farm Animals

Washing toys is always a fun and easy toddler activity. Add some farm animals to a container of soapy water and let them have fun!

Muddy Pig Painting

Make a muddy pig painting - this is actually a mess free (sort of!) activity. Rebecca showed us how she used a picture in a zip lock bag to paint the pig with 'mud'.

To make this muddy pig craft you need a picture of a pig. Rebecca had her toddlers color them first. Place the picture into a ziplock bag and add the mud (a mix of brown paint and shaving cream).

Securely close the bag and have your toddler mix the mud around. What a great farm activity idea!

Milk the Cow

I love this farm activity idea shared by Nicole. Fill a rubber glove with water put a pin hole in the bottom of each finger) and have them 'milk' the cow!

Make a Farm Sensory Bin

If I'm setting up a themed week of activities I like to start with a sensory bin or small world play as you can normally leave these out for most of the week and they will get played with each day. For a farm theme I really love this small world farm sensory play.

For this sensory bin Jennifer used colored rice (see how easy it is to color rice HERE), and some black beans for her farm sensory bin. I like how she used a kiddie pool to keep the mess contained!

Jodie made a muddy animal sensory tray - you can use pudding for the mud or can make taste safe mud by mixing corn flour, cocoa and water. Oats make a great base for a farm bin too.
