This blog is here for you to find fun learning activities to do with your children. We share great ideas we find and love on the Internet, as well as ideas we come up with on our own! We also like to share resources we find helpful.

To find ideas for your child, click on the age range blog label or on the theme/topic you are looking for (on the left side of the page). In each post, we try to list optimal age ranges for the activity, but you must judge for yourself if it is appropriate for your child. When you try an activity out, please comment and let us (and everyone else) know how your child liked it!

Pumpkin Turkey

I have these Jack-Be-Little pumpkins all over my house, serving as a nice decoration. I kept looking at them wanting to do something unique with them, and came up with this. I think they make darling decorations! This is a great activity for fine motor skills practice.

If you assemble the turkey, 12 months and up. The child will need to be older for assembling.


  • Pumpkin (you could also use a pear, apple...whatever)
  • Crayons
  • Feathers
  • Toothpick
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Nail
  • Turkey head printed out
  1. Have your child color the turkey head.
  2. If your child is able, have him cut out the turkey head.
  3. Tape the turkey head to the toothpick.
  4. You can either slide the toothpick into the turkey or poke a hole in the turkey with a nail and have your child slide it in.
  5. Poke holes for the feathers. Either you put them in, or have your child do it if he is able.
  6. Done!
