On the album there is a track about visiting the farm…. here is a little game you might like to play with the children, where they have to help the baby farm animals find their mummy.
Let’s have a look at some farm animals and their little babies.
There is one little animal that might live on the farm. I wonder who that could be?
You can expand the images and print them off. Then have a fun game where the child has to help the baby animal find its Mum….
Tip :- Introduce the children to the correct names for the animals.
The children have a natural ability to absorb and learn language in their early formative years so make the most of it.
It will help them to have a much broader vocabulary to draw on later in life.
Keep it simple at first. Lay the pictures of the mums out and give the child a picture of the piglets for example.
They have to look for the sow. When they find the right picture take the Sow and piglets away and put them together to one side.
Another way to play this game is to hide the pictures and have the child search to find the piglets mummy. You can have great fun with this as the little ones love making sure the babies find their mum.
You can improve your child’s vocabulary by chatting about what they see. Have a little chat, try to encourage them to join in conversation with you.
They will hear about going on a trip to the farm on the album. You can have great fun chatting with them about what they hear.
Can you guess which animal likes to roll in the yucky sticky mud?
Here is a lovely book I recommend called Pudgy Pig by Zoe Krause.
My son was given a present of this. I loved reading it with him. It’s a lovely pop up book which I am sure you and your little ones will enjoy.
This book is available on amazon or bookstore
