Preschool Thanksgiving Math Activities
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!
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).
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.
