The weekend is near and you are wondering how you can spend it with your children. Have you ever taken your children to visit a farm? If you haven’t yet, it is a great idea to organize a farm visit this weekend! This activity is at the same time entertaining and educational for both kids and parents! While visiting a farm kids will spend a day in the nature, breathing pure air and learning a lot of new things about the world around them.
At the farm your kids will learn:
Where food comes from
What are the different kinds of food
How to grow food at home
How to look after animals
How to plants and look after the plants and many other things
Before visiting a farm with your kids, there are several things you should know to make your activity as successful as possible! Follow these tips and you will spend an amazing day with your children:
Prepare yourself and your kids for the visit especially when it comes to clothes. Wear something that you won’t mind damaging with mud and manure at the end of the day. Wear sturdy, closed-toed shoes to protect your feet and make it easier to walk on the uneven ground.
Even if you are visiting a farm and you’ll find plenty of delicious things over there, take your water and some snacks with you. Be a polite guest and teach the children to be polite as well and taste only what you are invited to. Don’t forget that at the end of the visit you will always have the chance to buy some healthy delicious things from the farm.
Teach your children to stay on the paths so that they don’t harm the growing plants.
If you are a parent who is uncomfortable with the insects, mud, and animals commonly found on farms, try not to pass this attitude to your kids.
Follow all the rules that the farmer will give you at the beginning of your visit!
Be relaxed and open, and enjoy your visit!
