How to Play the Farm Animal Activity Detective Game

This is great fun for the children to guess and act out the animal. Before you start, download and print out the animal picture cards. Cut each card out. Fold the red barn paper in half and cut on the lines to create the screen over the animals.

Step One:
Place the animal card inside the folded paper with the lines cut out. Place a clothespin or clamp at the side to hold the picture in place. The child or children should sit in front of you. Explain to the children that they need to guess what animal is pictured.

Step Two:
You will lift one of the strips of paper at a time slowly revealing the animal. The children should guess what animal it is.

Step Three:

Once a child guesses what animal it is have the children act out that animal motion all around the room.


You could sing a song while they act out the motions.

This tune is sung to “Here we go round the Mulberry Bush”
“This is the way we crawl like a cow, crawl like a cow, crawl like a cow. This is the way we crawl like a cow all around the room.
This is the way we walk like a chicken….
This is the way we gallop like a horse…
For the pig: This is the way we roll in the mud…
This is the way we hop like a bunny…
This is the way we tip toe like a mouse…
