Corn Transfer added 4-2-99 Original Author Unknown

Provide the children with tweezers, one bowl of corn kernels and one empty bowl. Ask the children to transfer the corn from one bowl to another with the tweezers.
(Developmental Bonus: Hand-eye coordination)


Egg Toss added 4-2-99 Original Author Unknown

Number the sections of an egg carton with a marking pen. Choose the numbers 1 through 12, or any other numbers you wish to teach. If teaching very young children, use only a few numbers and repeat them two or three times. Pretend a Ping Pong ball is an egg. Ask the child to toss the egg into any section of the egg carton, and have the child call out the number of the section in which the egg lands.


Pig Roll added 5-29-99 Original Author Unknown

Have the children pretend to roll in the mud. Spread out a large blanket to represent a pigpen. Encourage kids to lie down and roll across.


Rooster Crows added 5-29-99 Original Author Unknown

Play the rooster crows. Remind the kids that the rooster wakes up all the farm animals each morning. Encourage everyone to pretend to be a sleeping farm animal. When you crow, everyone should get up and move like the animal they are role playing. When you crow again, everyone should go back to sleep.


Farm Guessing added 5-29-99 Original Author Unknown

A verbal guessing game: Using small plastic farm animals, one child holds an animal under the table and gives descriptive clues about that animal while other children try to guess which animal he is holding.


Bandanna Bag Toss added 3-06-01 Original Author Unknown

Make bean bags out of bandanna material - fill with popcorn instead of beans, not overly full. The children can stand behind a line of the floor and toss the bags into a rope circle on the floor


Drive The Pig To Market added 3-06-01 Original Author Unknown

Use a large ball for the pig, and a sturdy ruler or stick to push the "pig" forward. Ask the children to take turns pushing the ball along with the stick, driving the pig to market. Once they have mastered the basics, see if the children can manage to maneuver the pig along a designated path or through a simple obstacle course.
