I have a special attachment to pigs (even though they stink something awful…) since my grandparents had a pig farm when I was a child an I have fond memories of accompanying them to the State Fair to show pigs with them.
If you have kids who love pigs too, this Pig Rice Cake is is a super cute and semi-healthy farm snack for preschoolers.
If you want a quick farm themed snack that you can prep ahead of time and the kids can serve independently, this Popcorn Corn on the Cob snack and craft is perfect for that! Or let the kids create it as a fun fun themed craft!
Sometimes we have to make veggies look more exciting than they already are, especially for kids. I am in love with this Farmers’ Market Veggies idea!
