COOKIE CUTTER TURKEYS
|Help your children trace around turkey
cookie cutters on brown paper and cut out the shapes.
Let them tear red, yellow, and orange paper into small
pieces and glue them onto their turkeys for feathers.
Use the turkeys for room decorations, or turn them into
puppets by attaching craft stick handles.
This is a fun activity to use for reinforcing circles
and triangles. Give each of your children a brown paper
plate for a turkey body. Provide each child with a brown
paper circle to glue on for a head, a dot sticker for
an eye, and small orange triangles for a beak and feet.
Then give the children large triangles in assorted colors
to attach for feathers.
Give each of your children a paper with a barnyard scene drawn
on it. Set out turkey rubber stamps and ink pads in assorted
colors. Let your children use the stamps and ink pads to create
barnyards full of colorful turkeys.
Collect real feathers in four or five colors, or cut feather
shapes out of four or five colors of paper. Let your children
use them for the activities below.
- Group the feathers into piles by color.
- Count all the red feathers, all the yellow feathers,
and so on.
- Place the feathers on matching colored turkey shapes.
