I love making rainbows activities for my kids. They are visually stimulating and just a great way to practice colours. Sorting activities like these are also a key early math skill. When toddlers learn how to sorting and group items whether by colour, size or shape they are also learning how to analyze data, make relationships and apply rules.

How to Make Turkey Feather Rainbow

  1. Grab your large cardboard box and your paint sticks and draw the outline of a turkey. Colour it in using the paint sticks. I love using paint sticks to create activities like this for my kids. The colours are super vibrant and look like paint but it dries almost instantly so you aren’t waiting for hours to your activity to be ready!

2. Glue down tow googley eyes to the head of your turkey. Cut out a beak and the red snood for under its beak. Glue them down underneath the eyes.

3. Use a pen or a pair of scissor to poke holes all over the turkey feathers. The holes need to be big enough to fit a feather in but not big enough for them to fall through.
