Happy Wednesday! We've been having a great week so far and I hope it continues.
Our weather has still been amazing and the leaves are still falling off the trees. This made me think that we needed to do a craft with them which also could go with Thanksgiving. That's when I decided to make turkeys with the leaves.
Ella and I did this craft yesterday afternoon while Brayden was at a friends house (no school for election day) and Avery was napping. It was so fun and super easy and held Ella's attention very well.
Here's all you need for this craft:
- White cardstock, brown, orange and red paper
- googly eyes
- glue sticks
We had everything on hand so this was not only a fun project, but a free one too.
First, I gave Ella the job of cutting off all the stems on the leaves. Next, we cut out our turkey heads (I just traced a cup upside down to get a perfect circle)
Then we cut out our beaks and wattles (totally had to google what the red dangly part is officially called) We glued the turkeys head on our white card stock along with the eyes, beak and wattle.
Next it was time to grab some leaves and start gluing. Ella had so much fun with this and she did it all herself. She was quite funny though, she would not use a red leaf on her turkey, or any leaves that had brown spots on them.
When we were all done gluing our leaves for the feathers, we used a sharpie and added legs.
Here are our turkeys! This was such a fun project to do with my special girl!
If you have some leaves still hanging around, I encourage you to try this!
