Pick up a package of colorful quills at your local crafts store or online, and practice this fun and educational activity with one or more youngsters.
Floating Feather Game. Give one feather to each child, and tell them to place their feather in front of their mouths. Practice breath control together, first breathing easily to move the soft, fluffy part of the feather, and then blowing harder to move the rigid part of the feather. Then practice blowing feather up into the air and keeping it up with your breath.
