Dirt to make mud (or substitute with chocolate pudding)
Pink marker or crayon
Ask your child: What animals live on a farm?
Sing Old MacDonald Had A Farm while allowing your child to pick the animals you sing about.
Using a pink marker or crayon color your paper plate to make a pig.
Cut a strip of paper and a circle (to make nose)
Allow child to color and then tape onto the pig face (remember, it’s ok if your child places the nose in a different spot than where you think it should go. This is your child’s creation and their pig will look unique, just like your child!)
If you are using dirt, mix with water to make mud.
If you are using chocolate pudding, follow the package instructions to make the pudding “mud.”
Encourage your child to engage in some messy pig play.
Pigs like to play in the mud.
Let’s get our pig nice and muddy and make him happy!
Using paper plates with the center cut out (creating just a ring) tell your child that you are making different ranges for different animals.
Encourage your child to choose animals to have on each range.
Draw or create these animals and put them in their range.
Include math in this activity by counting how many ranges you have as well as how many of each animal can fit in each range.
