Let Them Create!

Now, comes the fun part.  Present the materials to your kids and see what they create.  Kids may create turkeys, or they may create some other kind of amazing artwork.  The materials will give them lots of opportunities for open-ended creation and for fine motor skills practice.

Let them have fun!

Add Number Cards for Counting Practice

Add some number cards to the tray and kids can practice counting as they play.  Kids can make 5 turkeys, a 5 feathered turkey, or even a 5 eyed turkey.
