Montessori Activity: Pasting Feathers on a Bird




Age: From 2.5 years old

Activity Duration: 5 - 10 minutes

Objectives:
1. To train the child's fine motor skills
2. To provide sensory play with feathers.
3. To provide a fun way to teach colours.

Materials:
1. Some feathers
2. 1 sheet of printed bird (I have made an outlook of the bird from google image search. Click here to download)
3. 1 bottle of glue

Directions:
1. Demonstrate to your child by gluing one feather on the bird.

2. Invite your child to choose the colour of the feather and to glue it to the bird.

Additional Information:
I thought this was a brilliant idea from Cherry Blossom Adventures. Instead of the usual colouring, this makes the picture more life-like with feathers glued to the bird. J tried this today and thought it was fun. I hope to repeat it again.
