A Farm Playscape - Part 2

Now that the playscape has been created, it is time to invite some little animals to come and live in the barn and on the farm.  I chose to get the Schleiss animals again, as I love the detail and quality so much.  I also just bought baby animals as they seemed to fit the best.

When I showed my young grand-daughter this farm set, she wanted to know, "Where are the Mommies?"  I had to inform her that they were still at the store.

Of course a farm playscape like this has a lot of versatility and you can use the animals you have handy.

The way I introduced the animals was to sing them in....they each had a song!

For example....

Sweetly sings the donkey at the break of day,
If you do not feed him this is what he says,
Hee Haw, Hee Haw
Hee Haw, Hee Haw,  Hee Haw

Ducks on the Pond by Kathy Reid-Naiman © SOCAN 2008

I love to watch the ducks swimming and playing. Children can pretend to be the 
ducks while we sing this song.
Chorus: Ducks on the pond, ducks on the pond 
Splishing and splashing and swimming all around 
Ducks on the pond, ducks on the pond 
Little brown ducks on the pond.
With their heads in the water and their tails in the air 
Looking for their supper – looking everywhere. Chorus
The mommy duck quacks, the ducklings quack quack. 
Quack, quack, quack, quack, quack, quack, quack. Chorus
The Daddy duck dives, the ducklings dive too 
They all swim around at the bottom of the pool. Chorus


There was a farmer who had a dog,

And Bingo was his name-o.
And Bingo was his name-o.

Baa, Baa, White Sheep

Baa Baa White Sheep,
Have you any wool?
No sir, No sir, no needles full.
None to make a jumper.
None to make a frock.

None for the little boy with holes in his socks.

The Pigs on the Farm say Oink, Oink, Oink

The Chicks on the Farm say Cheep, Cheep, Cheep
The Horse on the Farm says Neigh, Neigh, Neigh

Check out this great song here.

Old MacDonald had a Farm E-I-E-I-O !

And on that farm he had a cow, E-I-E-I-O
With a Moo, Moo here and a Moo, Moo there
Here a Moo, There a Moo, Everywhere a Moo, Moo

And on that farm he had some kitties, E-I-E-I-O
