    2. Paint 2 clothespin legs to match the bodies (ex: 2 pink clothespins for the pink pig body).
    3. Let the kids snap the matching clothespin legs onto the animals.

  • Play "Trouble on the Farm"
    1. Place several farm animal cards (clipart) in a bag.
    2. Wearing a straw hat and bandana, introduce yourself as a farmer.
    3. Tell the kids you have trouble with the animals not answering your call.
    4. Show the kids one card from the bag and say the animals name, replacing the first letter with a different letter (tig for pig, beep for sheep). The kids will probably want to correct you!
