The stuffed animals are out again, this time as farm animals. Dogs, cats, horses, cows, pigs, sheep…anything that's a farm animal can be used for this game. Set up the "farm" in a room and create separate areas, such as the horse barn, the grazing field, etc. You can play "what does the ____ say?" with a younger child, teaching them the various sounds that farm animals make. If you have some of those plastic Easter eggs lying around, you can pretend to gather eggs from the chickens!
