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