This week's featured preschool book is 10 Fat Turkeys by Tony Johnstone and illustrated by Rich Deas. It is a fun rhyming and counting book for preschoolers.
The repetition of the Gobble Gobble Wibble Wobble will have your little ones repeating along with you in no time. As this book counts backwards it's also a fun way to help your little one practice counting and number recognition. The rhymes for each number will help your preschooler to identify the number before you turn to the page.

Turkey Sensory Play for Preschoolers
This week's Turkey Sensory Play Activity is to get creative with an open invitation to make Play Dough Turkeys.
We love the tray that is used it's just a simple wooden cutlery tray, but a top tip that we do is use our Melissa and Doug Wooden Trays from things like Stamp Sets or play food. They make ideal containers for Nature Finds as well as invitations to play like this.

This week we are working on matching upper and lowercase letters with this DIY Turkey Learning Game.
We've chosen this because the same idea can be used with older and young children and for letters as well as numbers and shapes.

Even more playdough fun with this Play Dough Turkey Counting Game.
If you are worried about the use of buttons with your younger preschoolers that put everything in their mouth then you could switch the buttons up for foam or felt shapes that would work just as well.
