Potato peeling race! Arm each contestant with a large, baking potato and a peeler (visit your local dollar store for the peelers as they are cheap and uniform - everyone will have the same kind.) When you say "Go!" everyone is to peel their potato as fast as they can. Establish ahead of time what constitutes a 'winning potato' (i.e. all the peel off only, the peel PLUS the eyes removed, etc.) This race can also be done in heats if you are shy on peelers (timing the winner of each heat.) Here are some other ideas:
o Arm each person with more than one potato
o Mix the vegetables: Give them carrots instead of potatoes or one of each!

Purchase a bail of hay from your local garden center. Remove the strap and loosen the hay around a part of the yard or within a round, plastic kiddie pool (if you are concerned about the mess.) Put a limited number of silver dollar coins, plastic farm animals or whatever else you might want. Allow children (or adults, if the area is large enough) thirty seconds to search the hay for whatever you have hidden inside. If you've hidden coins, allow them to keep what they've found. If you've hidden small objects, allow them points for different items found. For larger groups, divide the guests into teams, combining their collective scores to determine a winning team.

Know anyone who could teach the group some country line dancing? If not, there are entertainment companies that offer individuals/instructors to come and teach it to guests at parties. This is a great activity that adult and child can enjoy together.

Play a few rounds of Farm bingo. This also a great game to play throughout the evening, giving out squares as the party progresses. You can either create your own Farm themed bingo boards or download them from the Internet HERE.

Do your best to get your hands on some scrap wood (the older and more rotten, the better). Often times we can look on the sides of our own houses to find a few scraps left over from past projects. Remember, the more weather-worn, the better. This wood is perfect for creating great looking signs. You can either nail a few together or let them stand alone (depending on their sizes and your own uses). With black acrylic paint (or a wide, black, permanent marker) write the names of different locations on the farm (i.e. Silo, Farmhouse, Pigs, Barn, etc.) With these signs posted in the appropriate places, you can give easy directions as to the exact locations for each of the activities. Simple maps can also be created using the names on the signs. These signs can either be mounted into the ground, nailed to trees, or hung with rope to name only a few options. If you can't get your hands on any wood, cardboard from brown boxes would also work.
