Next, it’s time to start planning the decorations. You can create a fun farm atmosphere with hay bales, barn doors, and farm animal cutouts. If you have access to a barn, even better! You can use it as the main party area and decorate it with bunting, balloons, and streamers.


One of the best parts about a farm animal party is the food! You can serve farm-inspired snacks like popcorn chicken, mini hamburgers, and pigs in a blanket. You can also serve fresh fruit and veggies like carrots, celery, and apples to give the party a healthy twist.

For dessert, you can create a cute farm animal cake or cupcakes. Use animal-shaped cookie cutters to make fun animal-shaped sugar cookies. Don’t forget to decorate them with fun frosting and sprinkles!

Now it’s time to talk about the activities. There are so many fun farm-themed games and activities you can do at a farm animal party. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Pin the tail on the donkey: This classic game is perfect for a farm animal party. You can create a donkey cutout and have the kids take turns trying to pin the tail in the right spot.
  • Egg and spoon race: This game is a classic and a great way to get the kids moving. You can use hard-boiled eggs and plastic spoons for a safer version.
  • Farm animal scavenger hunt: Hide plastic farm animals around the party area and have the kids search for them. You can also add a learning element by asking them to identify the different animals they find.
  • Petting zoo: Rent a petting zoo for the party and let the kids interact with real farm animals like goats, sheep, and chickens. This is a great way to give the party an authentic farm feel. 
    • Did you know that pigs are actually very intelligent animals? They can be trained to do tricks and even solve puzzles, making them one of the smartest domesticated animals. So, if you're planning a farm animal party, be sure to include some fun activities for the pigs too!
  • Crafts: Set up a craft station where the kids can create farm-themed crafts like animal masks, paper plate pigs, or even make their own barns out of cardboard boxes.
