Fun on the Farm

I try to include sensory activities at home. For this activity, we added lentils, small plastic pumpkins, silk leaves, take apart nesting barrels and small farm toys. These few items allowed my daughter to scoop, count, make noise makers and simply play.

Our favorite story for this theme is Driving my Tractor. This colorful book uses humor, repetition and rhythm to tell the tale of a farmer and his animals chugging along through the 4 seasons.  All my children love to listen to the CD and sing along with Steve Songs. At the end of the story, there is info on various  farm machinery and crops.
