Having grown up on a farm, I seriously love to take Lydia home to see it all! She loves to see the animals, ride the tractor, and hang out with her uncles. When we left her with my mom for a week I knew she would be in heaven. This copy of That's Not My Tractor has been at my parents house since my little brothers were babies, so how fun that my little gets to read it too! It's touch and feel which is always a plus in my book!
Usbourne Books has some great books and a whole "That's Not Mine" collection. If you are interested in checking them out, click here.
What You'll Need:

Activity #1- Toilet Paper Roll Tractors
This was the easiest project. Just take some empty toilet paper rolls and cut them into these little tractors. I just used children's paint to paint the wheel and the bodies. There you have it, a fast and easy toy.
Activity #2- Tractors for Lunch
To keep with the tractor theme, we decided to make a tractor lunch! I just used whatever I had on hand and made a little peanut butter sandwich into a fun tractor! Have you guys tried pirate booty for your kids? Its a huge hit around our house!
Activity #3- The Farm Printable Pack
I found this printable on Pinterest and it's awesome. There are all sorts of activities for your kiddos. It is thirty pages long, and its free! So you can pick and choose the activities you want to do. It includes number practice, matching games and much more.
Activity #4- Personalized Art
My favorite type of art project is one that has a personal touch. How cute is this little foot tractor. You can just choose your favorite brand or color of tractor, we chose John Deere green. Then just make it into an awesome farm scene!
