* 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!

Fondly,
pink and green mama
