Fun Farm Days

17
Mar

Recently we went to a local farm days and had a lot of fun.

Our Crafts N Things

Hailey loved petting and feeding the alpacas.

Hunter thought sitting in the tractors was pretty fun.  He did pet the alpacas but then didn’t want to touch any of the other animals.

Hailey got to touch a snake!

I love the look on Hailey’s face in this picture.

Hailey with a huge rabbit.  It was only half the size it will be as an adult, but it seemed pretty big to us.

As we were getting ready to leave, Hunter decided he was brave enough to pet the big bunny.

Once he did it, he wanted to see the other animals he had missed the first time around.

Hailey feeding a 1 week old baby cow.  She said it was very strong and was pulling really hard on the bottle.

We had a great time learning about lots of different animals!

The Little Chick

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

To make your cute little chick, you will need: construction paper in colors of your choice, some pretty Easter scrapbook paper, black marker, scissors and glue.

First I cut out an oval shape from the yellow construction paper to represent our chick.  Then I cut out another oval, just a little bit bigger than the size of the chick to represent a cracking egg.

Hailey glued on her chick and the cracking egg, then she added eyes.

She added a beak and then some decorative eggs around the bottom of the paper.

Tot School

Tot School

Hunter is 13.5 months old

We had another fun week of Tot School!  This was our last week of our farm animal theme.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Hunter enjoyed listening to the sounds the different animals make.  When it sings the song “Old MacDonald” Hunter sings along and says “E-I-E-I-O!”

Hunter made this cute footprint pig, you can see the original post here.

He also made this handprint chicken, you can see the original post here.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

We practiced finding the parts of the face in this book full of baby faces.  Hunter loves this book!

We also practiced body parts using Mr. Potato head.

I used this old container and cut some holes in the lid and then had Hunter put pom poms in the holes.  (I saw this on someone else’s blog and I can not remember where I saw it to give them the credit :-( )  He studied it for a while before trying it out.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

It took him several tries to get the pom poms into the holes.

Once he finally did it, he was very proud of himself!
This kept his attention for a long time!!  He did it over and over again and was so happy when he got them into the holes.
(Make sure you keep a close eye on your children when doing this so that they don’t put the pom poms into their mouths.)

Hunter also had a lot of fun playing with bubbles, you can see the original post here.

The cow had a lot of fun in  the bubbles too.

This is not really tot school, but this week my little man cub grew up :-(   He got his first hair cut.  He definitely looks more like a toddler and less like a baby now.

Before… trying to figure out what the hair dresser was doing,

Sad little boy

After a while he just sat quietly and let her cut his hair.

With a Cluck Cluck Here…

…and a cluck cluck there…

Continuing with the farm animal theme, we made chicken handprints this week.  I saw this idea at Handprint and Footprint Art.

I painted Hunter’s hand white, which he thought was very funny.  I didn’t expect him to do it, but he clapped his hands together when I did it… resulting in 2 painted hands :-)   Once the paint from his handprint dried I just added the head, feet, etc.  Hailey was using water colors at the table at the same time so I just used her water colors, but I would probably not recommend that as the colors really faded when the paint dried.

Hailey made a handprint chicken too!

I love handprint and footprint art… it’s really not that messy, especially if you’re prepared with some baby wipes right at the table with you.  Plus it’s such a cute keepsake!
