Dress Up Turkey
I’ve seen bunches of cute turkey and feather activities this week with magnets, felt, clothespins, and all sorts of other creative materials. I wanted to create something similar, but where real feathers could be arranged over and over again without attaching anything to them, so we made up this quick felt and cereal box turkey with a pocket on his back.
It’s been fun just to play with, and we talk through simple math problems using the feathers as manipulatives, too.
The turkey’s body is made of felt glued to cardboard, and this cardboard arc on the back is glued at the outer edges to hold the feathers in place during play.
