It’s turkey time again. And turkey crafts are all over the place. Here’s one you can use to boost math learning!
- Glue stick
- Construction paper
- Googly eyes (or a Sharpie)
- Template (download free here)
Cut out the pieces on the template from construction paper. Glue the pieces onto another piece of construction paper. Use long strips of construction paper, handprints or feathers to make the tail. Glue on googly eyes or draw in eye-pupils with a sharpie.
Ask your child the questions from the download. Keep the conversation going about shapes and sizes and refer to the turkey whenever you get the chance!
