Farm Themed Books and Activities for Preschoolers

It’s time for a new theme and we are SO excited! After finishing up our Apple Themed Books and Activities, we decided to pick a theme that would help us transition into Fall. So we picked a Farm theme! It’s the perfect theme for us while it’s not quite Fall weather outside. I hope y’all enjoy it as much as us!

Sensory bins are such a fun way to add fine motor skills practice to your thematic unit! We also toss in lots of our smaller Math and Literacy pieces to jazz up our homeschool routine!

To put together this Farm themed sensory bin, fill a bin with dry black or brown beans. Then add farm stickers or toys (be sure to check out Dollar Tree!) and lots of themed mini erasers or pom-poms that match your unit!

Once you have your sensory bin assembled, the possibilities are endless! Sort the farm animal toys, use the beans or mini erasers to count and build letters, you name it!
