Print, color, and cut out the Old McDonald Had a Farm song sheet and the Old McDonald song and game visuals.

• Old McDonald Song Visuals:
Use them to teach children this song, placing visuals on sticks for children to hold.

• Old McDonald Game Visuals: With a safety pin, pin a “farmer” or “animal” visual on the back of each child and have them imitate their animal while playing the game.


• To Set Up Game:
Place a 1-foot paper circle in the center of the room (a safe spot where one child can stand). Form boundary lines outside circle with strings to make a corral so “animals” don’t go too far from the circle.


• To Play Game:
Have “animals” (players) run around the circle to keep away from the “farmer” (another player who tries to tag them). To be safe, “animals” can stand in the center spot for 3 seconds.  When caught, the “animal” becomes the “farmer,” and they switch signs and roles.
