Counting and Number Match
Once all the feathers where in place we used our counting mat to put the turkey on top of its matching number.
Count out 1-10 feathers and put them in a pile. Next, have the child count them and place them in the play dough. Finally, select the turkey with the matching number of feathers and place it in the play dough.
She really liked the turkeys with lots of feathers. She kept laughing at them, which made the activity really fun!
Layout one piece of red, green, orange, brown, and yellow paper/paint samples. Give child a pile of feathers and encourage them to place the feathers on matching paper.
After Mr. Tickles was done placing his feathers we counted them together. He loves to count! He holds out his hand for me to hold with his finger out for me to point with him.
