Red helped me decorate a styrofoam ball to look (sort of) like a turkey. I got the idea here at I Can Teach My Child. I didn’t have a bouncy ball, so we used a styrofoam ball instead.
We started off decorating the ball with markers.
Then Red played/experimented with the feathers. He liked dropping them and watching them slowly fall. He also liked putting them on his head, silly kid.
During Red’s nap, I drew on a face and hot glued some feathers.
When he woke up we sang songs and tossed the turkey ball around a little. Red loves any kind of ball, so he was happy, and I was happy that this ball is light enough to play with in the house!
