We have tried several Feed the Animal activites and they are always a big hit. There is something about feeding a pretend animal that makes pre-k kiddos super happy and excited to learn and play. And with Thanksgiving coming up soon this cute little turkey is a fun way to practice some basic skills. Best of all this activity is so versatile so that you can work on letters, numbers, shapes, sight words, or even basic math facts.
