Toilet Roll Turkey
Welcome to another Playful Preschool Wednesday where a great team of mommy and educator bloggers bring to you hands on play for your preschoolers. All free of course! This week we are talking Feathers. I don’t know what to say about feathers except they are great for tickling. Here is an easy preschool craft that your preschooler will enjoy making.
Today I am bringing to you guys as easy toilet roll craft that will have your preschooler sorting and gluing. Like I said before that around this time we tend to stick to crafts. This time is no exception, the learning just presented itself to us and we took advantage of it.
- Toilet roll
- Construction paper in fall colors (please make sure that your pack has the color orange. Got home and realized we didn’t have a lick of orange paper in our pack)
- Wiggly eyes
- Glue (We used our DIY Glue Pad)
- You the parent can cut out feathers from the construction paper. Try to make them different thickness and length.
- Cut out the bill with orange construction paper
- Cut out the wattle with red construction paper
- Now let your preschooler sort the feathers. We first sorted by length then we moved on to width. After we did that we separated the thick feathers from the thinner feathers and sorted both piles by tallest to smallest while also sorting that pile by width. Let your preschooler do the same with the other pile of feathers. Once your preschooler have sorted the feathers all the ways that they could think of, then it’s time to start crafting.
- Glue the feathers to one side of the toilet roll and let dry
- Glue the bill and wattle on the front side of the toilet roll and let dry
- Add the eyes. Glue on wiggly eyes or draw them on with the marker
Now you have a Toilet Roll Turkey!
