10+ Farm Animal Crafts and Activities

As many of you know by now I m a mom of 3 little tigers and we live on a farm in Bavaria, Germany.

From birth on all of my children are obsessed with our farm and everything that comes with it.

From all the different animals to the big tractors and harvesters.

Every day the kids go for a tractor ride with their grandfather and while walking they visit all the neighbor farmers to see their animals as well.

During the different seasons, my kids learn naturally when to plant the fields, how the different crops grow and when they will be harvested, and what the different field fruits are used for.

We used to have bulls but now only hold pigs.

They help their grandfather feed them and see them grow.

We visit the cow farm next door and just recently were part of their corn harvest which they turned into cow food for the rest of the year.

My children are fortunate to learn through everyday life, they get the chance to see, feel, and participate.

Nevertheless, you don’t need to have a farm at home to learn about farm animals and farming.

Just simply use the next nice weekend to visit a nearby farm, petting zoo, or even many big pumpkin patches that have farm animals during the fall.
