Two items that pack an educational punch... feathers and packing peanuts. You get fine motor practice, counting, color recognition, pattern practice, creative thinking, and sensory stimulation. Now that’s a lot of benefits for such a simple setup! And they look like little Turkeys so you get a nice little bonus holiday activity.

Practice rolling a dice or using number sticks to determine how many feathers should go into the packing peanut. Create patterns with the colors of the feathers or sort into short and tall feathers. My daughters' favorite way to play, seeing how many feathers they can shove into a single packing peanut.
