Thanksgiving Tablecloth

Activity for an individual child or a group

Age group: 18-40 months

Duration of activity: 20 minutes

Materials:

  • 1 large light-colored flat sheet (white or yellow works best)
  • Black fabric marker
  • Fabric paints

Your toddler will feel that she is truly contributing to the holiday when she helps makes this festive tablecloth.

  1. Spread the sheet somewhere with plenty of room for your child to work.
  2. Have your child place her hand on the sheet palm down, with her fingers spread wide. Trace around her hand with the fabric marker. Repeat to create as many turkeys as she wishes. Perhaps the rest of the family will add their turkeys as well.
  3. Allow her to use the fabric paint to embellish the turkeys and to add any other decoration that she wishes.
