Thanksgiving Counting

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! And this Feed the Turkey Counting Activity is just that. Kids will be constructing their own colorful and festive turkeys while improving hands-eye coordination, scissors skills, creativityand so much more. Once they’ve made their turkeys, rolling 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!
