Farm Mini vBuckets for Farm Theme Play

Farm Theme Play: Every farmer needs at least one galvanized bucket to care for their farm animals:

a bucket to milk the cow in; carry chicken feed; water the mule, perhaps.

Little farmers, during dramatic play might pretend to carry oats for the horse in the stable with their own miniature galvanized bucket. ( 2 ¼ x 2 ¼ inches)

This tiny bucket will hold over 1/3 cup up to the ridged lines.

What would a 3 to 8 year think about drinking warm milk from a bucket?

Mini buckets sold individually. Some Farm Theme packages may include this bucket.

Early childhood benefits:

  • dramatic play
  • math/ counting/ fractions
  • science
  • motor movement
  • imagination fun


Tips from No Non-cents Nanna:

1) If you can get a hold on some farm fresh separated cream making your own butter is an awesome experience for children.

  • Each child can pour a portion of cream from their buckets into a jar with a tight fitting lid.
  • Adults may decide who shakes the jar 'till it is butter.
  • Please run the buckets and jar prior to “churning butter” to sterilize it.
  • Please wash hands before and after butter churning.
  • Encourage children to spread butter on toast with a butter knife.
  • Eat with scrambled eggs.

2) Children can gather plastic Easter eggs n the buckets at the Farm Dress Center. How many eggs will fit?

  • Prior to snack time allow each child to pick a raw egg from an egg carton.
  • Child might carry an egg in a bucket to your mixing bowl.
  • Have the child crack open the raw egg into their bucket to beat for scrambled eggs. Y
  • You cook eggs to eat with toast the children have buttered.
  • Be sure to wash hands well before and after this egg lesson.
  • Be ready for broken eggs on the floor and egg shells to pick out.
