Cock-a-doodle-doo! For generations, the rooster has been associated with farm living. Years ago, farmers listened for the rooster’s crow to know when to wake up and start the day. In fact, barns usually have weather vanes that are shaped like roosters too!
So it’s natural to include lots of fun Rooster Crafts and Activities for Kids when you do a farm unit study with the kids. Take a look at the crafts below to find some simple and cute rooster projects the kids will love to help you make!
Add even more to your farm unit with these hands-on Hen Crafts and Activities too! Stick with this Fowl Family and add in some Chick crafts, too! If you focus on these chickens all week, your children will know so much about them by Friday! This is the perfect way to introduce a Farm Unit to toddlers and Preschoolers.
