Do you need a Thanksgiving center idea or an activity for kids to do while the meal is cooking? Our kids loved color sorting and creating feather patterns on our free Thanksgiving turkey printable!

This week's Playful Preschool theme is Nuts and Seeds! We used pistachio shells to make our patterns but you can invite children to make patterns with stickers, cereal, M&M's, different types of dried pasta, colored counters, Skittles, or anything else you have on hand.
The turkey's feathers are the same pistachio shells that we dyed with liquid watercolors for our Monster Hands. First the kids sorted by color then we worked on creating repeating patterns for the turkey's feathers.
