Happy Valentine’s Day Eve, y’all!
Chocolate, Wine, Dates, Gifts, Hearts…that is what comes to mind when we talk about Valentine’s Day, right? V-Day isn’t always the celebration of romantic love though. Sometimes you celebrate the love that you have for your children…sometimes you celebrate your parents (and their love for you & each other)… Or maybe you are on a little homestead like me and you want to celebrate the animals that have become a part of your family. Why not spend this day/week/month of love on the homestead creating crafts and treats that can double as farm animal lessons for your kids??? You can move on to your date night later…Right now have a little fun creating some farm themed Valentine’s Day crafts with your kiddos!
Farm Themed Valentine’s Day Crafts
Give the kiddos a little gluing & cutting practice with this cute paper plate cow craft!
Throw in some fun trivia about cattle (What is a steer? heifer? cow? bull? What foods do we get from cattle?).
Forget hugs! Go for hogs & kisses this V-Day with this piggy handprint craft!
Teach different pig breeds with this craft… Not all piggies are pink, you know?
Make these treats in a heart shaped tray to show a little love to your birdie friends!
Have fun bird watching with your kids after setting these treats out. What kinds of birds visit your yard? If you are giving the treats to your chickens then you can talk about chicken breeds or how chickens digest their food.
