Feed the Turkey
Fall crafts and activities are everywhere this time of year and this one is a must! Activities that are fun, exciting and hands on are the best kind of activities for our little learners! Feed the Turkey is a fun to play math activity for preschoolers, toddlers, and kindergartners for fall. This counting activity is just that. Kids will be constructing their own colorful and festive turkeys while improving hands-eye coordination, scissors skills, creativity, and so much more. Once they’ve made their cute turkey craft, they will roll the dice and feeding the turkey encourages counting, memorization of numbers and to visually see quantities. This activity is also great for fine motor skills as the child has to pick up the small corn kernels, beans or rice!

Turkey Craft for Preschoolers
Start out by making the toilet paper roll turkey craft. Cut out yellow, orange and red cardstock into long ovals. These will be your feathers.
Next, carefully use scissors to cut out a snood and wattle using orange and red cardstock.
Now, allow the kids to construct the turkey by gluing the feathers to the back of the turkey making sure that the mouth (hole) is in the front and feathers in the back.
Next, glue on the snood, wattle and google eyes. Now your turkey activity is ready to be fed!
