As a child, there is nothing more fun than having a little world of your own to play in. When there are no rules to follow, the only limit is your imagination! Farm animals have always been a hit with my girls, even back to the early days of singing the “Old Macdonald Had a Farm” song. If you live in a big city, or don’t have a farm up the road to visit, you can bring a little bit of the farm life into your home with small world play! These fun and creative farm small worlds are a great way to bring the farm right to your table! You can use these as part of a farm unit study, or just set them up for your kids whenever they’re in the mood for pretend play. They make terrific sensory play activities for your toddler or preschool farm theme.
