So by now, it’s no secret. But I like crafting with my son. Although he’s not quite two yet, he still gets the concept pretty well. The other day when were working on one of these craft projects, his concentration/face were pretty killer. He was really into it and had that look like, please don’t disturb. Hard at work!
And of course with the holidays, it inspires the crafts we do. This past week, we had a turkey theme.
This craft was created with turkey cutouts (thank you Target $1 bin) and tissue paper. Cut your tissue paper into squares and let your child glue them on. You can use various shades of tissue paper to create a one of a kind turkey.
Saw this idea on another blog and ran with the idea. Although lil man was a little to young to decorate the T into a turkey, he watched me do the craft as I said all the colors out loud. At the end, I let him add some fall stickers.
This one was pretty fun. Just make handprints with paint on a separate piece of paper. Once those are dry, cut them out and arrange them with a turkey body cutout. You want to make the hands look like feathers. Glue it all down and add some eyes.
Since we had the paint already out and were making handprints, I decided to turn some handprints into turkeys.
This is the project that really had my son concentrating. He was putting each kennel, one at a time, on the glue. Silly boy. For this project you need some un-popped kennels, glue and paper (green & yellow). Cut out your paper to look like a corn cob. Then put some glue down in the yellow part. Have you child sprinkle the kennels on the glue. Let dry.
Last but not least, our toilet paper roll turkey. He was created with a toilet paper roll and a paper plate. Have your child paint/decorate the paper plate. If they want to, they can also paint the toilet paper roll. Once everything is dry, staple the toilet paper roll to the plate. Add eyes and other cut outs to decorate.
So that is all the crafts we did this week. What have you been up to? Share with us in the comments section!!!
