Learning letters for toddlers can be a lot of fun! And of course the best time of year to practice is any and every time. So I decided to set up this simple clothespin feather letter activity for my toddlers before Thanksgiving and it was hit.

How to Set Up Turkey Clothespin Letters Activity

  1. Cut the brown foam sheet in the shape of a turkey body.

2. Glue, eyes, beak and snoods to the head of the turkey. You can make one turkey body or several in order to practice different letters.

3. Grab your clothespin and black sharpie. Write the letters that you want to practice on the clothespin and the matching letter on the body of the turkey. We were practicing capital and lower case letters so I wrote capital letters on the clothespins and the corresponding lower case letter on the body.

Invite your toddler or preschooler to match the clothespin to the letters. Sound out the letters as the work. See if they can name an object that starts with that letter or even something they are thankful for.

My happy kids are 6 years and 2.5 years old.
