As I was putting away the Halloween decorations and taking out things for Thanksgiving, I came across the pieces from our Turkey Math activity a few years ago and decided to whip up some sensory turkey fun for the kids! We're sharing this post as part of All Things Kid's Thanksgiving collection in an effort to give everyone some great ideas for Thanksgiving crafts and activities.
The kids loved squishing and smelling the cinnamon dough, especially with the addition of these fun turkeys.
Turkey Math post.
My 3-year-old loved digging through the turkeys and finding specific numbers.
He also discovered that he could make prints in the dough using the turkeys and the foam feathers.
This was especially fun when we started making prints of the numbers. I would make prints and then mix up the turkeys so he had to match the numbers to their prints (which were backwards).
We also made turkeys with the dough adding the right number of feathers.
I put the dough in a plastic bag and put that in a box with the turkey pieces so the kids can pull out this center during naptime for the next few weeks. I love a good Quiet Time activity!
