Farmer Coloring Pages

Updated on September 12, 2014

Coloring Pages for Kids Featuring Farm Life

Children love animals, especially farm animals. Farmer coloring pages depict farm life similar to stories and picture books that appeal to kids. So coloring pages of animals and farmers gives young children a chance to learn while having fun.

Coloring pictures of farm animals can teach kids so many things:

- Colors (brown cows, white chickens, pink pigs, blue overalls on the farmer, and the green grass)

- Numbers (count the cows in the pasture)

- Vocabulary (silo, barn, wagon, fence, tractor)

- Sounds (cow goes moo, pig says oink, chickens cluck)

What Does a Farmer Do on the Farm?

Teach children about farm life by coloring

Farmers work hard taking care of the farm. The farmer's chores can include feeding and caring for the animals, planting and harvesting crops, mending fences, milking cows, and repairing equipment.

If possible, plan a field trip to a real live farm to let your children see what all happens on the farm. Then head home to reinforce what they learned using some coloring pages provided here.

Activities for Kids Beyond Coloring Pages

Know your farm animals!

Teach kids the names of the different farm animals by gender. Children can learn the correct names of farm animals with a little help. First explain that girls are called females and boys are called male.

- Pigs: The female pig is called a sow. The male pig is called a boar. Baby pigs are called piglets. A group of pigs is called a herd.

- Cows: The female cow is called a cow. The male cow is called a bull or steer. Baby cows are called calves. When we talk about a lot of cows, we say cattle.

- Chickens: The female chicken is called a hen. The male chicken is a rooster. Baby chickens are called chicks. A group of chickens is called a flock or a brood.

- Sheep: The female sheep is called a ewe. The male sheep is a ram. Baby sheep are called lambs. A group of sheep is called a flock or a herd.

      This Coloring Pages for Kids Featuring Farm Life lens is really nice. Thanks for sharing it.

      There are no lines or boundaries when we color, we just go with the feeling.

      I used to love coloring when I was kid. I was totally anal about staying in the lines - unlike my adult self where I vary from everything "normal."

      I color with my grandchildren and they color the pictures I draw. We don't require staying inside the lines OR using the accurate colors ... sometimes we change it up and make dots or hatch marks. Love this lens ... blessed by the coloring angel.

      Sure did when they were small. Staying in the lines was not so important back then. :)
