Indoor Activity For Kids:

Feed the turkey

In this activity you get to make a simple and fun toy for your kids. They get to scoop and transfer pom poms into the turkey's mouth.

This activity is inspired by ideas from Feed the turkey.

This activity is great to teach your kids:

Hand eye coordination activities help kids use their hands (and muscles) and eyes at the same time. When the two work together, young children begin to increase their ability to pick up, grasp, and manipulate objects.

Fine motor skills involve movement of the smaller muscle groups in your child's hands, fingers, and wrists.

Developing fine motor skills will help your child to write and prepares her for school. But it will also help your children with everyday tasks like eating, and dressing themselves.

Sensory play is play that involves all the senses - taste, sound, sight, touch and smell. Sensory play is very beneficial to children. Research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathways, which lead to the child’s ability to complete more complex learning tasks. Sensory play is also very relaxing and rejuvenating to children.

Step 1

Gather all the supplies

Step 2

Cut out the turkey's face and body from paper. Stick it to the bottle.

Step 3

Supply the pom poms to your kids with the bottle to your kids and show them how to play

Feed the Turkey is (in a nut shell) a recycled activity with a turkey face on it. I promise I’m trying to sell you on this activity, but I’m also trying to be honest – it was that easy and it’s that awesome. My kids will be playing with it until the actual turkey is carved.
