Farmyard Friends (Page Turner Adventures)

Get ready for cows on trampolines and chickens with attitudes during our first week of fun with farmyard friends.

Today, we have a special guest: Kamal Bell from Sankofa Farms. Kamal is not your average farmer - he started the 12-acre Sankofa Farms, in Durham, NC, to improve food policy, teach nutritional literacy, and educate kids about agricultural-related professions. Kamal will take us on a virtual tour of Sankofa Farms, including their working beehives, and give kids a "taste" of modern farm life.

Time for another egg-cellent craft. Today we're making chickens out of cups that actually cluck! Check below for instructions for this craft that you can print (PDF format).

Meet Tammi Sauer, author of 30 picture books with more on the way. Today we'll feature "The Farm That Mac Built" where the scarecrow from Old MacDonald's Farm emcees a barnyard theater production that collapses into hilarious chaos. And in "Not Now, Cow", all of the farm animals are ready for the seasons to change -- but not Cow. Visit Tammi at her website.

With a few paper plates and some simple supplies, you can make your own Myrtle Over the Moon! Or Sam Over the Moon, or Jessica Over the Moon, or....

In this original Moooosical Adventure, a "boring bovine" seeks love and fame on MooTube by attempting to jump over the moon using a trampoline, roller skates, and a jetpack. She fails, but finally realizes the appreciation she craves was there all along. A cast of talented kids join Kenny and Page Turner in this tale of farmyard friendship.
