Are your ready for for some Fantastic, Fancy, Feather Fun? It’s F week! Our letter F activity is gluing feathers. Have you been following along with our letter of the Letter Fweek? Which one has been your favorite so far? Let us know in the comments.
Letter F Activity: Gluing Feathers
What you need: Letter F, feathers,glue, and construction paper.
Feathers really are a lot of fun. They are light, fluffy and soft. This activity could not be more simple. Set out the feathers, set out the glue, and sit back and watch.
After your little one has enjoyed gluing feathers for a while try changing the activity a bit. Big M started blowing the feathers around. I grabbed a few different sized feathers, and the kid table. It turned into a wild game of Feather Racing. I wish I had a picture, but I was too busy trying to win.
Questions (to ask your kids): “Can you think of a word that starts with F?” Make the F sound. If the word they give you starts with something other than F, let them know what it starts with. “Good guess! Bike starts with B.” “Can you think of a word that describes how these Feathers feel?” Really focus on the letter F, exaggerate the sound.
Tips (to maximize learning): 1. There are a lot of F words, talk to your kids while they work. I’ll bet you find many F’s just in a simple conversation.
Use Five Green and Speckled Frogs along with this activity for even more Letter F activity fun!
