The Farmer Says is played just like that old, classic and fun kids party game Simon Says. The Farmer stands at the front of the group and tells the other players what to do. The Farmer Says stand on one leg, The Farmer Says put your hand on your head...but if the Farmer gives a command without saying "The Farmer Says"...anyone who obeys that command is out. This game is played until there is only one player left standing.
Piggie Squeal Contest is played just how it sounds...the child who can make the loudest Piggie Squeal is the winner. Of course, you might have to play a couple rounds to choose a winner.
Barnyard Animal Yell Contest is similar to Piggie Squeal. It's another noisy, but fun, kids party game. Let your party guests make barnyard animals sounds...the key to winning is to be the loudest yeller of all.
Duck Pond Game is that old time carnival game. Get plastic duckies that float...they are usually the 3 to 4 inch ones...and write a number on the bottom of each duckie in permanent, waterproof marker. Each number should have a prize value attached to it. For example the number one might mean you won a stuffed farm animal plush, while a number five might be a temporary tattoo with a farm animal on it. Float your ducks in a bucket or kids plastic pool filled with water. Let the kids scoop the duckie they want from the water and then give them the prize they won.
Pass the Piggie can be played as Pass the Cow, the Duck or whatever animal you like...I just liked the way Pass the Piggie sounded! The idea is the same as the classic party game Hot Potato. Have the kids form a circle. Give them a farm animla plush toy to pass around. Start some music and the passing begins. Stop the music and who ever is holdling the plush is out. Keep going until there is one child left in what was the circle. That lucky child gets to keep the farm animal plush toy!
Animal Charades is played the same as regular party Charades using a farm animal theme. Put the names of some farm animals in a hat and let each guest pick one...one at a time. Each player must mimic the animal they choose giving clues so the other team members can guess the animal. All this but without speaking so the game is challenging and fun.
Chicken and the Egg Hunt is exactly what it sounds like. Get some plastic chickens or chicken plush toys, balls...something with a chicken on it. Get some hard boiled eggs or the plastic eggs and fill them with goodies. Hide the chickens and the eggs all over. Let the kids go and have a hunt to find them. Each guest gets to keep the prizes they find. Start the game by saying, "Which Came First...the Chicken or the Egg? Never mind which came first...let's just find all the chickens and the eggs, so go get them!"
The Chicken Dance is a corny but fun party dance and you can turn this fun song into a very funny kids animal party game. The guests move to the music of "The Chicken Dance Song." Teach them the movements before the first official dance. This is just a fun party activity. No need for a prize unless you just decide to give everyone something!
Animal Farm Bean Bag Toss everyone knows how to play bean bag toss, right? Cut some holes in a box. Decorate the outside of the box...in this case, use a farm motif. Get bean bags...maybe some bean bag plush toys your kids have. Draw a tossing line mark where the kids must stand as they try to throw their plush beanine bags into the holes of the box. Make easy to get holes ten points and the more difficult holes get a hight point value.
