Who belongs together at the farm?


In this activity, the children challenge their motor skills by moving like different animals.


  1. The children spread out on the play area.
  2. The adult deals one card to each child, making sure that two of all cards are dealt equally.
  3. The children should then imitate the animal they have a card of. Preferably only with movements first, and if it becomes difficult, the children can also add sound.
  4. Now the children shall find the other child who has the same card as them by looking at the movements of the other children.
  5. The children who find each other go together to an agreed area (e.g., into the “barn”) -still imitating the animal they got on their card.


  • The adult can decide which movements the children should practice by choosing which cards they use in the activity.


  • By changing the cards, one can e.g., work with animals in the forest or insects.
