Nursery rhymes and songs are not just for fun, although it is so fun saying and singing rhymes about all kinds of things, it is educational too! Through rhymes, children develop language skills such as vocabulary expansion, speech fluency, speech intonation etc. Children develop auditory discrimination skills such as rhyming, alliteration etc. and these skills are essential for future learning. These super cute, free Farm Animal Finger Puppets are a fun way to work on literacy with toddlers, preschoolers, kindergartners, and grade 1 students. Whether you are a parent, teacher, or homeschooler – you will love this hand free nursery rhyme printable.

Print the the full-color set puppets, cut and assemble. A small sticky tape strip at the back does the trick. These steps might require an adults help. (These finger puppets are designed for small fingers, hence it looks a bit small on my adult hand in the image above.)

- Sing or say the Old MacDonald rhyme together, or any other farm animal rhyme you know. Show each animal when it comes to that part of the rhyme.
- Have a puppet show with the finger puppets.
- Simply play out a scene on the farm. Perhaps you have a farm-themed sensory bin you could use. Insert a cork in place of the fingers, to make the puppets movable inside the sensory bin.
