Toddler Crafting~Writing with a Quill

Toddler Crafting~Writing with a Quill

We were at a friends Bar Mitzvah this week and they had a great craft to try with kids- writing with a quill.  The activity was to show kids how a scribe writes the prayer for Tefillin.

Supplies:
Large Feather with the tip cut on an angle
Small cup with ink
Thick Paper

Start by showing your child how to dip the quill in the ink and then write on the paper.

Baby Bear loves to do crafts, so this was so fun for her to do and she didn’t need very much instruction. She loved the big white feather.  We talked about the quill coming from a bird.  We have Mute Swans in our pond {a pair we named Roberta & Ernie}, so it looked like a feather that might come from them.
