I had a lot of stuff planned for today. Months and months could be spent doing a farm theme and I packed our Farmers theme into one day, but I plan to do farm animals individually with time. We did have a great time talking about Farmers. I hope this day is enjoyable to look through.
Use Farming Puppets to explain what farmers do, the machines they can use, and animals on the farm.
