Farm and Little Red Hen Themed Activities for Preschoolers

We have picked 5 easy activities based on this theme. Pick the one that appeals to you the most, try a few or if you are looking for more structure for your days then check out our weekly suggested schedule and plan to try all 5.

Farm Sensory Play for Preschoolers Inspired by Little Red Hen

This week we have a Farm themed sensory bin for you to put together for your little one.

I particularly like the scooping and fill the tractor silo that you can make. If you don’t have corn then switch it up for a sensory bin filler that you do have. There are lots of different options that you could use depending on what you have laying around.

Alphabet Activity for Farm Week

We’re working on letter sounds this week with this Farm Animal Letter Sound Game.

If you don’t have the jigsaw used then raid the toy box for your farm animals and use them instead.

Preschool Math Activity for Farm Week

With our Math Activity this week we are going to be working a little on number recognition, counting and also writing the numbers.

This Farmyard Sensory Writing Tray is an ideal way that your child can work on forming the numbers (or letters as you could combine this with the alphabet activity this week) without the need for worksheets.

Little Red Hen Cooking Activity for Preschoolers

Just like the Little Red Hen this week we are making bread with our preschooler.

This easy bread recipe is perfect for little ones to make and the bread tastes delicious. Make it into a loaf or create some fun shaped rolls with it.

Art Activity for Farm Week

The fields are full of tractor tracks this time of year as the harvest finishes and this Tractor Track Print Art Activity is a lot of fun for your preschoolers.

Provide some easel paper or even a roll of brown paper paints and let your children create their own giant print pictures.
