Fun Activity Friday - The Tale of Two Turkeys!

Making holiday memories!

What you'll need:
Construction Paper
Paint (fall colors - orange, brown, yellow, red)
White card stock/White paper plate (we didn't have either so I just took a piece of cardboard and glued a piece of white paper to it)
Toilet paper roll
Glue stick

We did two different turkeys, the first turkey was the handprint/toilet paper roll turkey. I let Evie paint the toilet paper roll brown. Then I had her help me trace her hands and Milo's hands on different color construction paper (we had 9 hands for the feathers). I cut out the beak, waddle, and eyes. Then Evie put the glue on everything and I helped her place the items on the toilet paper roll. She loved every part of this project, especially when we put it in our front window!

The next turkey we did was just supposed to be paper plate (as mentioned above we didn't have one so I improvised) and construction paper. I had Evie help me cut everything out and she painted the white paper by herself and then we glued everything on together. She really loves using glue sticks and this was a great project for her because there was so much glue!

I love making holiday projects to use as decorations. Not only is it an inexpensive way to decorate the house, but kids really love seeing there art in the house! Every time we come home from somewhere, she wants to look at her turkeys. It's great!

Added a pic of our version of the turkeys. It was super easy to do and my daughter loved it! They came out really cute too :)
