- Line up the play pieces (hay bales, animals, fence, and farmer) and ask the child to count them. How many people are there? How many animals? How many all together?
- Ask the child to choose a play piece and name all the colors on that piece. Then ask the child to look for the same colors on the other pieces.
- Remove the railing from the side of the trailer and use it to make different shapes for the child to identify, such as a triangle, square, or parallelogram.
- Ask the child to look carefully at the farmer, and then remove it from view. Ask the child to answer questions about the farmer's appearance (such as, "What color is his hat?") without looking.
- Ask the child to use the pieces as inspiration to trace or draw a farm picture.
