Nursery rhyme coloring: Old Macdonald had a farm

We have a super treat for you all today on the site, a completely original article, and printable all with a nursery rhyme coloring focus. Perfect for little minds and little hands to get stuck into. The BEST thing is that this is for a favourite nursery rhyme: Old Macdonald had a farm. This has got to be one of the favourites in the nursery rhyme stable don’t you think?

We have put together a total of 11 pages for you to color with the Old Macdonald had a farm theme. This is perfect for little kids, and you can even sing along with all the words while you are coloring as well?

Nursery rhyme coloring: What do you get

Nursery rhymes coloring on a table with toys and crayons

In order to make sure you know what you are getting, let’s take a look at the pages that we are including for the kids.

Front cover and sheep

“Old Macdonald had a farm…. E-I-E-I-O

And on that farm he had a sheep”

The classic nursery rhyme

We have given you some of the rhyme on our pages, but we are letting the children guess all of the noises, or remember them, depending on their age.

We don’t have the clues for what noises any of the animals make!

The first two pages of the book include our Old Macdonald had a farm’s farmhouse, of course! As well as the first animal that we are including in the coloring book; the sheep.

And then there was a pig and a duck

For the following two pages, we have added another couple of animals to Old Macdonald’s farm. We love pigs, and ducks, don’t you? So it made complete sense to include these on the farm as well!

Aren’t they just super cute? Why not get the children to create some lovely designs on them, rather than just color them in traditionally?

Tractor and a horse

You cannot have a farm with a tractor right – so here’s one for you to color in, and you can decide for yourself what noise it makes as well! We’ve got a fabulous horse to go with it too.

Hen and a cow

We are missing something rather traditional aren’t we – the cow on Old MacDonalds farm, plus the chicken of course. So we have them both now for you. Check them out here!

Create-your-own coloring for the farm and an apple tree

We have finished the animal pages, but we have added in a blank page for you to create your own animal – you can make an animal up – your own creation – or get them to draw another animal for the farm.

After this, there is a wonderful apple tree to color in.

Old Macdonald had a farm herself

We have saved the best to last with the farmhouse, and Old MacDonald herself to color in – who said they had to be a man, right?!?!

We are pretty fond of the last coloring page in this free coloring book, and we really hope that you are too as well.
