    Default Feather crafts

    Ok so I ask this with a great deal of trepidation(!!), I have just bought a lovely bag of craft feathers in bright colours and wondered if anyone has any feather related crafts they've done or seen that they can recommend. I had a paper plate peacock in mind as one activity that I saw and liked. I'm afraid I'm not on pininterest so can't access all the great stuff on there :-)

    Sticking them in playdough or clay is a good fine motor skill.

    It's very easy to sign up to pinterest and you don't have to use your own name or anything resembling your name! I don't do Facebook or anything like that, but I do collect 'pins' on pinterest. (With a totally made up name) I'm actually finding really useful to be able to easily find pages/websites I like, rather than save them to my favourites which I was doing.

    Not really a craft activity but my little ones love wafting them about the floor with a piece of card. Older ones have races with them as well.

    That's a lovely idea plus could be used when comparing sizing and weighing.
