Perfect “turkey” felt board story for your toddlers learning colors! All you need is have some felt, glue and scissors! The poem goes like this:
Mr. Turkey was so sad.
He lost the feathers he once had.
Now he wants us to help him find all the feathers of his kind.
We will look both high and low, we will find them, don’t you know.
Here’s a red one and a blue.
Look, we’ve found a green one too.
Here’s an orange one and a yellow soon he’ll be a feathered fellow.
Now we’ve found the purple one, Black and white-we’re almost done.
If we just look up and down, I know we’ll find the feather brown.
Now Mr. Turkey is so glad, We found the feathers he once had.

Make the feather pieces from all the colors of the rainbow and make the body of the turkey. To do that, cut a peanut shape out for his body out of brown felt. Then cut a little triangle of orange felt for his beak and a little red rectangle for his gobbler. You can also add little orange feet if you feel inspired! We used googly eyes and it made our “Tom” a little more animated.#happythanksgiving#teachingthroughplay #nannylife#creativity
