Here is a really simple feather fine motor activity that our kiddos will enjoy. If you are looking for a fine motor activity for a Thanksgiving, turkey, or bird themed unit…this is a great one. But, it really can be used anytime of year.
Only Two Supplies Needed
All you need are two supplies: craft feathers and foam noodles. I used craft noodles, but you can use foam packing peanuts, or a piece of Styrofoam. I have included affiliate links for supplies at the end of this article.
Feather Fine Motor Fun
Kids can poke the end of the feathers into the foam to create little turkeys or birds. Sure, you can add eyes and a beak, but kids will have fun with just the simple materials.
The little birds can be glued to a piece of paper to create a work of art, but I like the idea of placing the supplies in a sensory bin so that kids can just play and experiment. In addition to working on fine motor skills, kids can work on patterning, sorting, and math concepts. The ideas are really endless.
