I would encourage everyone to take their children to visit farm animals. It would be a wonderful experience for children to pet and feed these friendly animals.
Children would love this experience of nature and become curious and interested in learning more about these animals and how we are connected to them.
You can talk to your children about how horses, cows, goats, sheep, chicken etc are important to us. Talk a little about how horses are used as carriages, cows that give us milk that in turn becomes cheese and yogurt, goats milk, sheep wool, chicken eggs, about manure and its importance for plants that make food for us. Understanding that things are part of a cycle and the need for respecting it should be taught at a young age.
Have fun with your children when visiting the local animal farms that will teach children many valuable lessons and inspire their creativity.
