Description

These baby birds have lost their feathers and only your little one can help them get it back! This is a fine motor skills toy that helps kids build hand muscle strength and fine motor skills development as they replace the chunky, peg-shaped “ feathers” within the holes that dot the little bird's back. These colourful feathers also lend themselves well to lessons in counting, sorting, and colour identification skills.

Kids can arrange feathers by warm or cool colours, work on sequences and patterns by alternating colours, or count the feathers. These feathers have different textures for extra fun.

There are 5 birds in each set, each with 5 holes and 5 pegs of the same colour. There are 5 different peg shapes, and each colour has one peg of each shape. Each peg has a different texture. 

 

Why we like it:

  • This is a 2 handed activity, you need to stabilize the bird with your one and remove the feathers with the other. 
  • This is a great bath toy as the birds are made of plastic and because they have so many holes they easily release water
  • Sort by colour. Reinforce the colour by saying the colour out loud as you push in each peg.
  • Place the feathers in any order, picking up one feather in each hand and putting them in at the same time, 2 at a time.
  • Hold the bird in one hand and put the feathers  in with the other. Then switch hands and do it again.
  • Call the feathers by colour  to add one at a time,
  •  Place one feather, upside-down in the child’s hand. Ask them to turn it in-hand to orient and place it in the bird.
  • Mix two different coloured feathers sets on the table. Fill one bird, then the other. Add more sets of feathers to the pile until you can do all five sets.
  • Put the feathers away by saying each colour out loud as you pull it out to reinforce colour names. Try to hold more than one in the same hand as you pull them out. Alternate hands.
  • Put the feathers in by design. There are 5 different designs that also have different textures so you can fill each bird with one design (which will be one of each colour).
