Designed by by Regina Parsons-Allen, a pediatric certified Occupational Therapy Assistant, these cards will add hand strengthening, coordination and physical activity to any Thanksgiving fine motor and movement station at school or a party!

What is Included in the Thanksgiving Dough and Movement Card PDF Packet?
The play dough cards contain the Thanksgiving dough objects at the top and the body movement actions at the bottom. Add sand, glitter, or sea salt to the play dough which can provide a fun sensory element.
The play dough items include the following objects: Beans, Cranberries, Ham, Mashed Potatoes, Pumpkin Pie, Stuffing, Sweet Potatoes
Turkey, Acorns, Apple Bin, Bale of Hay, Leaves x 2, Pumpkins, Rake, and Sunflower.
The cards come in full color and black and white. The black and white version can be used if you simply just want to work on fine motor and visual motor coloring skills coupled with the body movements.
OR maybe you do not have the same dough colors as the color cards and you need different colors for the play dough items to match the dough colors you do have.
OR maybe you use both, one for completing the dough and movement activities and then a separate set for the child to color and possibly take home to use.
