Alphabet Turkeys: Match Capital and Lowercase Letters

Alphabet Turkeys

 

Match capital and lowercase letters with these alphabet turkeys.  Use any word (like “Thanksgiving” or “Give Thanks”).  It is great reinforcement for matching capital and lowercase letters!  Or you can even help your child practice recognizing the capital and lowercase letters in his/her own name!

Here’s what you’ll need:  construction paper, a piece of cardstock (to make the template for the feathers), scissors, glue, and googly eyes (we received compliments of CraftProjectIdeas.com).
