Shapes Turkey Craft - 
Shapes, Scissor Skills, Colors, and Counting Practice

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

This craft can be used to teach a variety of skills.  You don't have to use all the thoughts for lessons... just choose the ones you're working on with your child.  I have included a small version of the template as well as a large version that used multiple template pages.
 

Shapes Turkey Craft

Materials:

  • scissors,
  • glue,
  • Printer,
  • paper

Thoughts for Lessons:

SCISSOR SKILLS:
 

  • This craft has lots of circles and ovals to cut out -- good scissor practice!
  • You can precut the template into separate pieces (roughly) to make it a bit easier for beginning crafters to cut out the shapes.

SHAPES:
 

  • Separate the circles, ovals and triangles.

COLORS:
 

  • Verbally instruct the children on how to assemble the shapes using the colors of the shapes. (ie: Take the orange triangle and glue it on the brown circle.).

SIZES:
 

  • Show the children two circles and ask -- is this one bigger, smaller or the same size as that one.

COUNTING:
 

  • Count the circles, ovals and triangles.

Assembly Directions:

  • Glue the small circle as a head on top of the larger body circle.
