Ever Been to a Farm?

Have you ever been to a farm? When you live in a big city like Istanbul it’s a bit difficult to find one, so here at Kids Nook we try to give the kids the full farming experience with our Old McDonald sensory games.


 First we have them build farms for all the animals, including Mommy Animals and Baby Animals.


Then as thanks, the chickens give us eggs…


The cows gave us milk…


And we made some great cakes! Yum!


What kind of farm games do you like to play? Let us know in the comments below!
