# Turkey Math

### What You Need:

• Plain glove or mitten
• Sticky-backed Velcro dots
• Construction paper
• Markers
• Scissors

### What You Do:

1. Using a marker, help your child trace out between 10 and 20 feather shapes onto the construction paper.
2. Encourage your child to get creative and use multiple colors, but be sure there are an even number of feathers.
5. For example, if your child cut out 20 feather shapes, then two feathers will have a 1 written on them, two will have a 2 written on them, and so forth.
6. Have your child count out how many velcro circles they'll need based on the number of feathers your child cut out.
7. Then, help your child stick the “hook” half of the Velcro dots onto the back of each feather (one per feather).
8. To play, place the turkey on your child's hand.
9. Then, say a pattern with one blank space (for example, 2,4,2, __ ).
10. Your child must then find the correct feathers to stick to the glove, in the correct pattern.

Feeling ambitious? Try out some addition and subtraction if your kid is up to the challenge.
