By 7:00 AM , , , , , ,

Turkey crafts are always so much fun! So I am excited to share our latest activity with you that is a great activity to also work on your little one's fine motor skills-- Beaded Turkey Patterns Busy Bag.  I've included some printable task cards below to make this activity re-useable, so check those out, too!

This activity was fitting for our Playful Preschool Turkey Theme!  To make this activity yourself, you'll need to first assemble your turkey, so gather:


With the items listed above, paint the stryrofoam ball brown.  Once dried, add googly eyes, triangular shaped beak, and red yarn.  To keep the stryrofoam ball from rolling around, I cut off a bit at the bottom so that the turkey would sit flat on the table.  Next add your toothpicks.  If assembling the turkey isn't do-able, just use play dough instead!

Along with the styrofoam turkey, provide a small cup of pony beads and the task cards for your child to complete the turkey patterns.  Encourage them to build the patterns.  For an older child, see if he/she can build the next sequence!
And I highly recommend you laminate the task cards for future use; this activity can be thrown in a resealable bag and it makes for a great busy bag activity to pull out when you need your child to do something on his/her own!  Would you like to make this activity?  Click through for the printable Turkey Patterns Task Cards {and please follow proper downloading etiquette.  Do not share the link, but encourage others to stop over here! Thanks!!}
