Put Your Feather
Give your child a craft feather to play a game. Ask your child to put the feather on various parts of their body, such as on their knee, on their toe, on their head, by their nose, on their back, on top of their hand, or on their elbow. Continue playing the game as long as your child shows interest.
Challenge children to blow a craft feather up into the air and then try to keep it aloft by continuing to blow air. What tools can you use to keep the feather aloft? Use a fan, a straw, an empty squeeze bottle and see which ones will work the best.

Invite your child to paint using a sturdy craft feather as a paintbrush. Paint with your child. Talk with your child about feathers. Point out that feathers repel water.
