Montessori Practical Life Button Turkey
Montessori Practical Life Button Turkey for Preschoolers
5 different colored felt sheets (you can use less or more that is up to you)
Between 6-8 Medium sized Buttons and thread.
Wiggle Eyes are optional (you can also cut out felt eyes)
First I freehand cut the dark brown for the turkey.
I used a tan colored felt for the body (cut in a peanut shape) I added the face with cut felt parts and wiggle eyes. I would suggest using Spray Adhesive to glue your pieces together.
Cut out 6-10 turkey feathers in different colors putting a small slit towards the bottom (make sure the button will fit through your hole)
Sew the buttons on or if you have an older child they can help with assembling the whole turkey.
Your button turkey is ready to go. You can also use this as a fun busy bag.
