A farm-themed party is an adorable idea for your child’s first birthday. The gender-neutral theme can be enjoyed by everyone, as well as by those old, young and somewhere in between. We’ve hearded up some of our favourite ideas for party games fit for a farmyard.
1. Farmyard bowling.
This easy DIY will set your farmyard birthday bash apart from the rest. Toddlers, grown-ups and teens can get excited about this simple bowling game.
2. Treasure hunt.
Host a mysterious treasure hunt. Don’t forget to stock up on prizes for the winners!
- 12 charming eggs in a carton will help preschoolers learn to count, sort, and match! Each plastic egg contains a different colour and number, with corresponding pegs and holes.
3. Sheep shearing.
This multi-sensory activity is ideal for curious little hands.
4. Photo time!
Everyone loves a good selfie, especially at a party. Get creative and draw out your scene, then cut out the head holes. Just bear in mind the height of your smaller guests.

5. Story corner.
For the really little guests, have an adult-supervised story-time area. We love the idea of using finger puppets to bring the tales to life. Be sure to choose a good selection of farm-themed books, including Chicken Licken and The Little Red Hen.
- You can wear them on your fingers and move fingers with compact design

7. Hay bale horse photo prop.
Take some fun photos of your baby and their friends using this cute (and soft) hay bale horse. Easy to put together using a hobby horse, hay bale and some blankets, all your photos will look hay-mazing!
8. Feed the Pig apple toss.
This hungry piggy just loves to eat apples. Quick to make from some strong cardboard, just have a bowl of apples (or soft balls) nearby for children to feed the pig with.
