Thanksgiving Playdough Patterns

ages 2-6


Supplies

Playdough; small and large turkey cookie cutters; strips of paper; pencil or marker

Activity Detail

Using large and small turkey-shaped cookie cutters, trace a pattern onto a strip of paper. For example, small turkey, large turkey, small turkey, large turkey. Have your child cut turkey shapes out of playdough, using the same cookie cutters, and place them on top of the traced turkey shapes. They can continue the pattern beyond the strip of paper. As they master simple patterns, you can develop more complex ones. This is great for practicing early math skills.

I think it would be easier to just cut out big and small turkeys and have the child arrange them into patterns. With playdough, you would need a good amount of it to develop a pattern.
