Farm Animals Activities for Preschoolers
Not only are these free printable farm animals activities easy to bind together for an on-the-go activity, but they can help your kids work on some basic reading and visual discrimination skills.
To start, print out the coloring pages on regular printer paper. You can pop them in a skinny binder or give your child to complete one page at a time.
Next, print out the flashcards, handwriting cards, and memory matching cards. I recommend printing the flashcards and handwriting cards on cardstock and laminating them for durability.
Print the memory matching game on one-sided scrapbooking paper. You can usually find these papers in the scrapbook aisle at your local craft store. They have a design on one side and are white on the other. The printed paper helps kids not be able to see through the memory cards.
I love these each one of these farm animal coloring pages. I can’t pick just one. What I love even more is that you can sneak in a little learning with these pages.
Each coloring page has a word naming each the featured animal. This gives kids a look at the fact that letters make up words.
You can talk about beginning sounds and work on letter recognition, as well. Call out a letter and see if you child can find it on the page.
Have them say the name of the farm animal they’re coloring. Focus on its beginning sound, and have them find the letter that makes that sound.
Older preschoolers might be ready to learn the difference between vowels and consonants. Have them color the vowels one color and consonants another.
This preschool pack also includes a set of flashcards featuring an animal and its name. You can use these to focus on spelling. Have your child choose a card and use letter magnets to spell the animal’s name.
Use the handwriting cards to practice handwriting. You can punch a hole in the top left corner of each card and bind them with a ring. This makes a great activity to pull out while you’re waiting in a restaurant or doctor’s office. If you laminate the cards, your child can write with dry erase marker.
Print the matching game on one-sided scrapbook paper. Laminate and cut the cards apart. Lay them out facedown, and have your child flip over two cards. If they match, your child keeps the cards and takes another turn. If the cards don’t match, they flip the cards back over and their turn is over.
