What Is A Quail?

A quail is a smallish bird. The name quail can be used to describe many types of birds. They weigh only a few ounces, so they aren’t too big.

Many quail have what looks like a fancy hat on. It’s called a topknot (like the everyday mom hairstyle 😂). Although it looks like one feather, it’s actually six overlapping feathers.

Crafts are the perfect way to tie in new learning. Try reading books about quail and follow up with this fun quail craft.

Reinforce the Letter Q

While doing this letter Q craft, you can talk about the letter Q and the sound used for the letter Q.

Great Hand Muscle Work

Coloring, cutting, and gluing all use hand muscles (fine motor muscles). Preschool is when the hand muscles strengthen, and little ones start to get the hang of using them.

Of course, this requires practice. This letter Q craft is a great way to strengthen and let your little one learn how to use their fine motor muscles.

4. Cut out all of the elements. To get the center of the Q cut out, gently fold the Q in half. Cut on the dotted line (through the fold).

Open the Q back up, and you should be able to stick your scissors through the hole you made. Finish cutting around the inside of the Q.

5. Place the blank paper so the long sides go up and down.
