Old Macdonald Had A Farm Song
I love the song Old Macdonald had a farm. In fact I remember singing this as a child in nursery school. I was only 3 at the time but it’s one of my oldest memories, singing this song. If you want to teach or sing the old Macdonald song with the kids whilst crafting, here is a link to the lyrics and music video.
Supplies Needed For This Old Macdonald Craft

How To Make These Farm Animal Crafts For Kids
Download the template and print out. Cut the template out and trace onto cardstock. Cut each piece out.
Glue the pieces of the ears together and use a black marker to draw lines onto the straw hat.
Paint facial features onto each egg and don’t forget to add character such as spots on the cow.
Glue the ears onto each egg, and the straw hat onto the farmer.
Lastly use a pencil to draw eyes onto each farm animal.
When you are satisfied with how the eyes look, trace over them with a black paint pen or permanent marker.
