Farm and Animals Coloring Pages
One of my all time favorite things to do with my kids is to visit local farms. We’re fortunate in that there are so many farms near me that allow you to get up close and personal to the animals. Plus, we often indulge in their locally made milk, ice cream and more.
My older son is disabled and not all outdoor activities are accessible to him. Or, they require too much physical exertion for him. Visiting farm animals is something we can do together that is accessible, easy to do, and doesn’t require a lot of planning.
Like much of what we do with him, I like for things to be a multisensory learning experience for him. I also try to reinforce the learning at home, such as working on some farm coloring pages. We may do this in preparation for an outing, or after we return.
Farm Coloring Pages
I used to work at a local apple picking orchard that also had animals for the kids to visit with. We’ve been down there so many times I can’t even count. We have gone on hayrides which is a really fun activity too.
If you are doing a farm unit at your preschool or school, or even just as a family, here are some great farm coloring pages and farm animal coloring pages to complement your farm visit. Here is a gallery of some of the pages in case you want to browse before printing. You can also scroll through each pdf in each individual window before printing.
Farms make it so easy to incorporate so many different ways of learning. Not just surrounding the child with language, but there are so many farm songs for little kids. All the farm animals make sounds to mimic. And, most areas have farms, so almost everyone can access one!
