How to Make a Healthy Snack Shaped Turkey
2 mandarin oranges
Preparing the Healthy Snack Fruit
Constructing the Healthy Snack
The coffee stirrers were easy to thread the grapes onto. JDaniel tried to push the stirrer through the hole at the base of each grape and then to pull the straw through. I asked him to try to put the grapes on in a AB pattern. He has worked a lot with patterns and had no trouble completing that request.
Threading the grapes onto the stirrers was a great fine motor activity. JDaniel had to work on focusing, counting the number of grapes on each straw along with patterning.
When he had finished loading the stirrers with grapes, he arranged them around the pear. Some of the sat on the plate and others JDaniel pushed into the pear. The straws filled with grapes were hard to push into the pear so, laying them beside it worked best.
We both sat back and took in the wonderful creation we had created together for a moment or two. Then the turkey’s head and feathers quickly disappeared. The pear went into the fridge for later along with some of the grapes. I am so glad I was able to take a picture of it before the healthy fruitful turkey snack was deconstructed.
