This activity was a HUGE hit at our house. Big Brother would have continued this all afternoon if Mean-Old Mommy didn’t make him take a nap. :) It’s also very open-ended and could be adapted for numbers and shapes as well!
Here’s what you’ll need: a dry-erase marker, feathers, and a small markerboard. If you don’t have a markerboard at home (mine is one I had in my classroom), you could just cover a white piece of construction paper with contact paper.
|1. Using your dry erase marker, write a large letter on the markerboard.|
|2. Give your child the feathers to place upon the lines of the letter.|
|Continue with more letters. This provides an excellent time to practice color recognition as well!|
|We even ventured into practicing tracing our numbers with the feathers. This activity is so versatile!|
|Guess who else liked the feathers??? :)|
