Clothespin-Legged Farm Animals and File Folder Barn
- wooden clothespins
- printable farm animal template
- file folder
- printable barn with barn door line drawing
Now the animals need a barn. I thought back to our chapel made from a file folder, and realized I can make a barn using the same idea. I found a simplified barn with barn door line drawing. I stapled that print out to the file folder, and then cut along two side of the barn door so it can open.
Granted, the barn and animals are not to scale, and the animals are a bit anthropomorphic, but the children really enjoyed coloring and assembling the animals.
Oh, and our snack included cheese (from an animal), apple (from a plant, with seeds) and Goldfish Grahams (because they're yummy - I mean, because they are in the shape of a fish).
