Peek-A-Boo Farm Animals Activity (Free Printable)

I’m sharing a free farm animals printable today for this week’s down on the farm themed Discover & Explore linky. The farm animals printable is a fun little game to do with any toddler or young child! (Be sure to check out all our farm activities for kids!)

 Peek-a-boo Farm Animal Activity~ Buggy and Buddy

Does your toddler or preschooler love farm animals like mine? Theo is just enthralled with sheep, cows, horses, and pigs and loves to imitate their different sounds. To build on his interest, I created a simple farm animals activity that we both can do together! (This post contains Amazon affiliate links for your convenience.)

To set up the activity, you’ll first need to print out one farmhouse (in color or in black & white) and one sheet of farm animals (in color or in black & white). Once you’ve printed out both sheets, circle cut around the farm animals. Now you’re ready!

 How to Play Farm Animal Peek-A-Boo

Peek-a-boo Farm Animal Activity~ Buggy and Buddy

Theo and I first took turns placing one animal inside the barn window. We’d talk about the animal and say it’s sound. After we were done exploring the animals and barn, I cut out a little peek-a-boo flap from red construction paper, placed it over the black window on the printable, and taped it down only along the bottom edge (allowing it to open and close from the top).

Theo just loved taking turns hiding the different animals behind the door! We’d take turns hiding an animal and playing peek-a-boo to discover what it was.

It was also fun using the activity to sing Old MacDonald Had a Farm. First, one of us would hide one animal behind the door. Together we’d start singing the song, “Old MacDonald had a farm. E-I-E-I-O. And on his farm he had a _____________.” When we came to the part where you name the animal, we’d open the flap and discover which one was hidden inside and then add it to our song. We’d take turns changing the animal after each verse. So much fun!

Lucy (my 5 year old) and I played the game a bit differently. We would take turns hiding a farm animal behind the barn door.  Then we would give each other clues using describing words to help the other person guess which animal was hiding. It was a great opportunity to introduce Lucy to adjectives through play!

I’d also love to share a few of our absolute favorite farm themed children’s books with you. These get pulled out of the bookshelves often to be read all throughout the year!

 

Our Animal Friends at Maple Hill Farm
by Alice and Martin Provensen

This has to be one of our most favorite books of all time! It contains so many beautifully illustrated pages of different farm animals with fun little stories about each one. This is definitely a must-own!

 

The Year At Maple Hill Farm
by Alice and Martin Provensen

What a great book for observing and learning about the changing of seasons over the year on a farm! This book is one of our favorites from our Books to Read Year Round book set.

 

Big Red Barn
by Margaret Wise Brown

Lucy loved this board book growing up, and now it’s becoming one of Theo’s favorites as well. The rhythm of the text is very calming and soothing making it a nice book for any quiet time of day. Such a beautiful and simple story describing the day of various farm animals.

  1. I clicked on the links for the black and white version of the “Farm Animal Peek-a-Boo” printable. There was no picture. It never showed up. Am I doing something wrong? Do I need to download something to view it?
    Thank you!

  2. Wow, this is such a great idea! It’s in my Pinterest Board now. Can’t wait to use this when we do our Farm Theme.
