Thanksgiving Activity Wall

For our November activity wall, we decided to incorporate Thanksgiving by making a turkey. Each day we will "pluck a feather" from the turkey. Each feather has a different activity.

We started by drawing a turkey on white paper. I cut  it out and placed it on our activity wall.
Then I drew four feathers on a piece of cardstock. I cut 2-3 pieces of paper at a time. I used brown, orange, yellow, and red cardstock (7 pieces of paper total for 28 feathers)

Then we taped on the feathers.
