Are feathers the googly eyes of November? I think so! This Fine Motor Turkey Activity is the BASTE way to play while prepping for Thanksgiving.
Another huge positive for this activity is you only need two things: feathers and a colander.
You can make a turkey face too if you’d like.
You can find feathers at any dollar store for only a dollar and you get a ton of them. You can use them for so many other crafts and activities throughout the year too. They also make for a great sensory object.
For this Fine Motor Turkey Activity, all I instructed Mila to do was make a turkey out of those materials.
Mila had fun sorting the colors and making the turkey look ‘silly.’ It gave me time to make dinner and it would be a fun race for the kids on Thanksgiving Day.
I truly believe the simplest activities make the biggest impact.
As usual, Mila did an amazing job and I know other kids would like this activity too.
I love how this activity could be used for little kids too. It’s a great sensory activity that works on motor skills!
For older kids, you could do a timed activity where they either need to put all the feathers in OR take them out the quickest. It’s simple for kids of all ages.
What sort of activities do you do during Thanksgiving? Or does your family play any fun games?
I completely agree with you when you say the simplest activities make the biggest impact. I love the simplicity this activity brings to the kids. A total fun activity to keep the kids busy this November while keeping the holiday spirit.
I love how this turned out. Those feathers look so cute!
This is SO cute! I need more activities for my toddlers fine motor skills too!
Such a great idea! I bet it isn’t the easiest for small kids to get the small feathers in the little holes so this is perfect for fine motor skill practice. Thanks for sharing this.
What a cute activity for the kiddos! I have a ton of feathers in all the colors and I did not even think of this! How brilliant!
This is such a cute idea! I can totally see Grandpa wearing the hat after Turkey dinner.
love how you put together these fun and easy kits..
