Thanksgiving Activity Ideas For Preschool
Pin the Feather on the Turkey
Draw a picture of a featherless turkey on a large piece of poster board. Attach the picture to a wall. Put loops of masking tape (sticky sides out) on the backs of real or paper feathers and place the feathers on a table close to the turkey picture. Have the children take turns choosing a feather from the table and then closing their eyes while they try to “pin” the feather on the turkey.
Turkey Feather Game
Cut five turkey body shapes and fifteen feather shapes out of felt. Number the turkey body shapes from 1 to 5 and put them on a flannel board. Place the feather shapes in a pile. To play the game, have the children take turns selecting a turkey identifying the number on it and adding that many feathers to it.
