Happy Thanksgiving Turkeys

Happy Thanksgiving! Today we practiced being thankful as we celebrated Thanksgiving before our long Holiday weekend. In celebration of the holiday we made one last turkey! Our paperbag turkeys helped reinforce our shape skills, color identification skills, fine motor skills, and ability to follow directions. They turned out adorable and will make a perfect centerpiece ;)!





First we glued our circle eyes and triangle/diamond beak!

Next we stuffed our turkeys!




Then it was time for his bow tie.



Add tissue feathers and a balloon and it's all done!

  3. Thank you for you comment! I used low plastic cups, like punch cups. The low and wide cups hold it up very well. They can stand up by themselves but they are not very steady. A swift wind will take one down.

  4. I am in love with these turkeys, they look like they're dancing. I may make some and use them as centerpieces for our table this year.

  8. NO deflated balloons for toddlers. That is a chocking accident just waiting to happen.
