Fine Motor Turkey Activities for Toddlers

Hi lovelies! Today’s Discover & Explore theme is Thanksgiving, and I’m sharing two activities that I did with the twins last year, both of which target fine motor skills in a fun, feathery way.

Fine Motor Pinecone Turkey Activity

If you are looking for a super simple turkey craft, here is one that we posted over at Little Pnuts- pinecone turkeys for toddlers. The fine motor emphasis comes when the little ones add the feathers or pipe cleaners to create the tails- no glue is involved! Go see how we did it by clicking the text link or photo below.
