Here is another easy to make fine motor turkey craft. You will need the turkey pattern ... glue ... tissue paper ... and scissors. Print the turkey on cardstock paper and cut it out (we glued ours on colored cardstock paper but you don't have to).
The next step is to cut or tear tissue paper into small squares and separate by color. Apply glue drops to the blank blank turkey feathers. We put glue in a small plastic bowl and the children dipped qtips in the glue and dotted it on the blank feathers.
The next step is to scrunch the squares of tissue paper and press them on to the glue dots on the turkey patter. We did one color per turkey feather but you can also just used mixed colors.
You can grab the tissue paper turkey patterns here.
The free membership printable this week is butterfly alphabet punch for letter recognition and fine motor development. You can print the patterns on either cardstock or regular paper.
I used a paper slicer to to cut the strips. I purchased mine at Michael's craft store but they can be purchased online as well. I made the patterns in both black and white and color so you would have a choice of what to print.
In this activity children use a hole punch to punch the dots on under the letters on each strip that match the letter on the butterflies. You can also use mini or regular clothespins as well as large plastic paper clips.
You can grab the patterns below for free until Sunday June 9th ... after that date they will only be available in the member's section which is also where I have added a butterfly number punch.

The free membership printable this week is Spring Bird Alphabet Match for letter recognition and fine motor development. I print the patterns on cardstock paper ... and then cut them out and laminated them.
I separated the birds from the nests and set them out on the table along with some large plastic paper clips. Children found the birds and nests with the same letters and then clipped them together with the paper clips. You can also just lay the nest on top of the matching bird.
You can grab the patterns below for free until Sunday April 14th ... after that date they will only be available in the member's section which is also where I have added a spring bird number match.

I know it's a little late for shamrocks but it's been a hectic week and these turned out so cute I decided to share them anyway.
Print two copies of the shamrocks on cardstock paper and then cut out and laminate them.
In this activity children find the same color shamrocks and clip them together with clothespins or paperclips. Play continues until all colors have been matched. You can download the shamrocks below:

The free membership printable this week is Helicopter Letter Sliders for letter recognition and fine motor development. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and then laminated them.
Using and x-acto knife I sliced along the two lines on the helicopter. Taking one of the letter strips I pushed the left end up through the right slice of the helicopter and pulled it down through the left slice.
In this activity children pull the letter strips through the helicopter and read the letter that is displayed in the center of the helicopter. Once all letters have been identified on the strip a new strip is put in.
You can grab the patterns below for free until Sunday February 18th ... after that date they will only be available in the member's section which is also where I have added Helicopter Number Sliders.
