* Preschool At Home: Clothespin Turkey Fine Motor Practice

Remember our button practice turkey? He needed a friend.
I saw a clever activity like this on a preschool blog (Montessori Beginnings) with a
 paper plate turkey and feather clothespins. 

I loved the feathered clothespin idea so of course, I had to whip out my glue gun
the other night and make some of our own. 
This happened while I was cooking dinner -- we seem to do a lot of last minute crafts this way! 

I also drew a turkey for "C" on a piece of stiff brown felt
with Sharpie markers

Great fine motor, pinching, practice for my favorite 3-year-old!
You can see my favorite 7-year-old in the background sitting at the piano
(she was playing "Over The River and Through The Woods" for us!)

Warning: Blurry Turkey Action Shot!
 We made two turkeys; one to keep at home and one for my daughter's preschool class.

Gobble! Gobble!
