Harvest and Farm activities and games for preschool and kindergarten

Harvest and foods that come from a farm preschool and kindergarten activities. Have fun learning about the work of a farmer on the field and all the foods that come from a farm. Farming is a very important part of you and your child's life. Fruits and vegetables come from farms. The milk you drink and eggs you eat come from farms. Grains for cereals and bread come from farms. And the meat and beans that help make up your dinner and your bones strong come from farms.

Fall and Harvest Learning Center Ideas

Dramatic Play Area

Make a farmers market. Provide baskets, real or plastic fruits and vegetables, crates, brown lunch paper bags, a scale, a cash register, play money, straw hats, and flannel shirts.

Block Center

Add farm machines, a large piece of brown felt, small plastic toy vegetables, scarecrows, and some small straw bales.

Discovery/Science Center

Provide resealable bags, paper towels, and pumpkin, and bean seeds. Let children use magnifying glasses to look at the different seeds and sort them. Let each child choose a seed, place it on a wet paper towel, and place it inside a plastic bag. Label the bag with their name and tape it on a window. Wet the towels from time to time to keep them moist. As soon as the roots begin to grow, let children transfer the seeds to a cup of soil and continue to care for them.

Fine Motor Skills

Provide a bucket with fresh corn and an empty container. Let children pull off the husk from the corn. Cook the corn for a yummy snack.

Sensory Table and Fine Motor Skills

Provide different root vegetables (potatoes, radishes, carrots, and some pumpkins) together with some vegetable brushes and some towels. Let children use the brushes to clean the vegetables.

Farm Animals Song:

Farm Sounds
(Tune: The Wheels on the Bus) Teach your child the sounds that various farm animals make by singing the following song with him or her:

The cows in the barn go moo, moo, moo,

Moo, moo, moo,

Moo, moo, moo,

The cows in the barn go moo, moo, moo,

All around the farm.


The pigs in the pen go oink, oink, oink,

The hens in the coop go cluck, cluck, cluck,

The lambs on the hill go baa, baa, baa,

The ducks on the pond go quack, quack, quack,

The horses in the corral go neigh, neigh, neigh,


Move Like You Are A . . .
Ask your child to move as if he or she is a galloping horse, pig wallowing in mud, chicken pecking at dirt, etc. Encourage your child to make the noise of the animal that he or she is imitating at the same time.

Thumbprint Chicks
Pour yellow paint into a shallow container. Have your child gently dip his or her finger in the paint. Then, have your child press his or her finger on a sheet of a paper, making one or more fingerprints. Add facial and feet details. These make great note cards.

Animal Sorting
Provide pictures of both farm animals and zoo animals and have your child sort them according to whether they are found on a farm or in a zoo.
