Activities
  • File Folder


















This is a home made file folder. I used a picture in one of our books to draw the farm, but you can find pictures on google images and print those if you prefer not to draw.  This folder has baby animals on the picture.  Kids can choose to match the mother to the babies, the name of the animal or the name of the baby animal.  

  • Visit a garden or explore one of your own.  Have kids plant fall veggies.
  • Pretend to play farm.  Ride horses, milk cows, plow fields and more!
