She's Crafty: Feed the Turkey

This fun craft/toddler activity is brought to you by one of my favorite toddler bloggers! Busy Toddler is an amazing mom who you should follow on Pinterest or Instagram. Bonus she is local and is actually neighbors with one of our instructors!

For this activity you will make a water bottle into a turkey. Then your child will practice those fine motor skills and use tongs to feed the turkey with pom-pom balls. This alone, kept my 2 year old entertained for 15 minutes. For my 4 year old we turned into a competition to see who could get the most in their turkey in 5 minutes. You can adapt this so many ways. For example, who can get the most red and green pom-poms.

Visit the Busy Toddler at busy or follow her on Facebook or Instagram. I promise you won’t regret it.
