Are you ready to visit the farm? This whole week is filled with farm animals and just perfect for young kids. I am not sure there is a better theme for a free summer camp at home. You can have so much fun this week.
Also, don’t forget our Summer Stem Lab if you have some older brothers and sisters who want to get in on the summer fun do NOT miss it!

Here are your activities for the week. Click on the titles if you need more detailed instructions!
AM: Paint With Veggies – create art with yummy veggies straight from the garden. Use part of it for painting and the rest for a snack!
PM: Paper Plate Pig – Paper plates are perfect for crafting, and this pig is not just a craft, it includes mixing colors too!
AM: Gardening For Letters – we plant carrots every year, so I decided to turn some pool noodles into letter carrots and play! Learning letters doesn’t have to be a drill, it can be fun and silly too!
PM: Cotton Ball Sheep – I love this craft because it allows kids to explore texture as well as create something. Don’t worry if your child’s sheep doesn’t look like a sheep, let them explore and create.
AM:Farm Sensory Play – fill, scoop, pour! This sensory bin encourages a lot of learning and imaginative play.
PM: Peel & Pick Apple Tree – go searching for letters on this apple tree and use fine motor skills to pinch and peel the apples off.
AM: Habitat Sorting – Where DO these animals live? Explore natural habitats with your child’s animal toys.
PM: Handprint Hen – I love handprint crafts because they capture how little your child was when they created it.
AM: Shape Scarecrow – this scarecrow is a must in every farmer’s field and creating with shapes is a great way to manipulate and learn about them in a hands-on way.
PM: Rip & Glue Carrot – this simple craft works on hand strength as kids rip the paper and is the perfect activity before sitting down to some carrot sticks for snack!
Extra YUMMY fun
