Friendship is a beautiful thing, but when playtime results in chaos, someone needs to tidy up. The animals on the farm have made a mess of things, so the Smart Farmer’s goal is to put away each animal into his own pasture. However, the farmer has only three fences to divide his field into separate meadows for the horses, cows, sheep, and pigs. Please don’t forget, each meadow will need its own source of water. With 60 different challenges, Smart Farmer teaches spatial insight, planning, concentration, problem-solving, and flexible thinking.

”I think Timberdoodle is spot on with including this in Kindergarten with the average 5 or 6-year-old being able to complete the challenges, possibly for years to come.”Read the Review

My kids love Smart Farmer! This is my way of starting the day with something smart and fun. We also use it for break time if they are getting bored and restless during their lessons.
My son loves this game and I love how it gets more challenging so that we can continue to come back to it and play. LOTS of different puzzles keeps it from getting boring for him.
This game is great! My children, ages 3-11, play this game! It can get a little tricky. This game always begins as a strategy game, but often turns into much longer dramatic play. My kids love it! It is perfect and easy for traveling, too!
These smart games are my kiddos favorites! AWESOME way to break up the school day.
Like Little Red Riding Hood, we’re still using this and it’s great simple logic practice for him--I like these puzzles as a way to keep him occupied while I set up another activity (or fix coffee and a snack plate).
