Farm Dramatic Play Ideas
Place flannel shirts, overalls, hoe,
straw hat, animal costumes, boots, etc; in the
center for the
children to dress up with. You may choose to incorporate pictures
show the children examples of the result of dressing like a
farmer, like a cow, etc;
Map off an area, if you would like,
for a pretend class farm. This may be inside or outside,
on the need and availability. Recreate a garden area, complete
with garden tools, seed packets with markers, and seeds to plant.

Place Farm animal puppets, handmade animal hats,
and other props in your dramatic play center.
Animal Chit Chat
Using animal patterns, make a stick puppet for each animal.
Hold two animals, such as a horse and cow, far apart.
Start "walking" them towards each other. When they meet, have
them stop and "talk."
COW: "Hi, friend Horse. How are you today?"
HORSE: "I'm fine, friend cow. Where are you going?"
COW: "I'm going to the barn. It's time for my milking."
HORSE: "I'm going over to the corral to give my friend Raymond a
COW: "Bye, Horse."
two children each pick an animal, walk towards each other,
and then begin a conversation. When they're done, have them say
and walk away. All of the other children clap. Continue with
more animal chit-chat.

a saw horse, wrap numerous layers of old newspaper around the
middle and then
a brown blanket. Add a yarn tail, paint some spots on saw horse
legs, add cow a face,
made from a shoebox, rubber glove for utters.
