Clay Farm Zoo

What to do:

  1. After talking about farm or zoo animals or after a field trip to a farm or the zoo, have children make a clay farm or zoo.
  2. Talk about the kinds of animals that are found on a farm.
  3. Have children make any animal they choose for their farm.
  4. You might ask questions, such as, “How many legs does your cow have? Does your cow have a tail?” Don’t be surprised if children come up with rather imaginative animals of many colors that might be hard for the farmer to identify.
  5. Children can make a farm or zoo with Popsicle stick fences, barns made from small boxes, and other simple materials. This is a good activity for older children.
