How can you help your preschooler to learn basic math skills? Put down the flash cards and worksheets, and try these Thanksgiving themed ideas instead!

Pattern Play

Patterns are a basic math skill preschoolers can master. Turn your child’s pattern play into a holiday craft with a few turkey-inspired touches. Give your child two colors of finger paint—brown and yellow. Have your child create a thumbprint pattern, alternating the two colors. After the paint dries, turn the patterned prints into tiny turkeys. Your child can use markers or colored pencils to draw on eyes, a beak and feathers.

Counting Turkey Feathers

Help your child to create their own handprint turkey. Press their hand into brown or tan paint and then print a picture (onto construction paper). Your child can draw a beak and eyes onto the thumb and turn the fingers into feathers. After the paint dries, count the finger-feathers or use them to add simple sums (such as two plus two).

Shape Collage

Explore geometry with a turkey shape collage. Cut ovals, circles and triangles from construction paper. Have your child puzzle the pieces together to create a turkey. Use a circle for the head, a triangle for the beak, an oval for the body and thinner ovals for feathers.
