Create a cow head and tail out of posterboard. Affix the head to one small chair and the tail to another small chair. Place a broomstick across the two chairs. Poke small holes in the fingers of a rubber glove. Fill the glove with water and some milk and tie the glove at the top tightly. Hang the glove from the broomstick and let children "milk" the cow.
