Kids love pretending, especially when it’s something that in reality they could never be. When I was young I always wanted my parents to get us a dog. When that didn’t happen, I just pretended I was a dog instead. One of the best parts of being a kid is using your imagination. You can be anything you want to be!

Let us help you out with some of the artistic details. Our printable farm animal masks will be a huge hit for any animal loving kid, or perfect for a farm unit. Allow your students to be as creative as they want and enjoy the many farm animal sounds that will soon be blessing your classroom!

How To Use These Farm Animal Masks

How to Use the Activity

  • Print, cut out, and laminate the activity for durability.

Using the Masks

To create the masks, simply print on card stock and/or laminate.

Cut around the outside of the head, cut the eye holes (I use a box cutter), poke one hole near each ear and thread a piece of string or elastic through to create a mask.

What Other Animals?

Have your children think of additional animals they can create masks for? Use a paper plate (with eye holes cut out) and have your child create their new mask with crayons, markers, yarn, etc.

Write a Story

Write down on a piece of paper a story that your child tells you about their farm animal. Modeling writing for your child shows them proper letter formation and print/word concepts.

Creative Storytelling

Have your children come up with a short play or story and use their farm animal masks as props.
