Fun gift ideas for farm kids

Holiday shopping season is in high gear!

Choosing gifts for the children in your life is always fun, but sometimes it’s hard to come up with something that will really surprise them.

Here are some fun ideas geared specifically toward farm kids.

Happy shopping and happy holidays!

Pigology and Chickenology: The Ultimate Encyclopedias

These hard-cover books are aimed at children, but they’re both full of interesting information that will educate adults about pigs and chickens as well. They are beautifully illustrated and share facts in quick-reading tidbits. Both include background on breeds, biology, care, and uses of the animals. A great gift for farm kids or city kids alike.

Build and Grow Sets

Lowe’s offers dozens of beginner wood project kits for kids ages 5 and up, and many are priced under $10. This kit includes everything needed to build and decorate a 13”x6” barn with animals, and it’s $7.98. Other kits include tabletop cornhole sets, birdhouses and feeders, monster trucks, airplanes, Christmas ornaments, and more.

New Holland 1/32 Harvester, Tractor, Grain Bin & Auger Set

Your little grain farmer will love adding this set to his or her play farm. This set includes the New Holland CR9090 harvester, plus a tractor with wagon and a working grain bin and auger. This set could also be used as a teaching tool to help kids understand the importance of staying away from augers, bins, and other equipment.

Kids’ rubber boots

Every farm kid needs rubber boots, but who says they have to be boring? The PVC boots from Tractor Supply Company come in dozens of styles, including these firefighter and light-up Case-IH designs. They come in little kid sizes and most are between $15 and $35.

Personalized egg stamps

Help your little chicken farmer take their egg business to the next level with a custom egg stamp featuring their name. Southern Paper and Ink’s Etsy shop offers several different customizable designs for both eggs and cartons, most ranging from $25 to $31.

Ryze Tech Tello Mini Drone Quadcopter

With this beginner's drone, kids can take overhead pictures of the farm or capture video to check cows! It has a 13-minute flight time and a 5 MP camera that also shoots HD720 video. It’s controlled via smartphone so photos and video can be easily shared. The specialized flight controller allows for easy flying plus cool tricks and a mobile programming app lets users command the drone by creating their own code.

Leatherman Skeletool Multi-Tool

Getting that first multi-tool or pocketknife is a rite of passage for farm kids of a certain age. This model has a combo-edge blade with lock, pliers with wire cutters, a bit driver with four bits, a carabiner, and a pocket clip. It will come in handy when doing all kinds of chores.

Give experiences

Whether you’re shopping for the kid who has everything, or you just want to give something that will spread the joy throughout the year, consider gifting a membership to a nearby amusement park, zoo, or science center. Gift certificates to the bowling alley or movie theater are a hit for kids of all ages, and concert tickets or online music or movie streaming service subscriptions fit the bill for teenagers.

Subscription boxes are available for nearly every age range and interest, and the recipient gets the added bonus of getting mail! Popular themes include STEM activities, craft kits, books, and jerky or international snacks. A quick online search will turn up several ideas for the kid in your life.
