Craft Time with Nathan

Now that Nicholas has started wrestling again, I've been hearing Nathan complain that "there's nothing to do"
You know, because we don't have enough tvs, other kids, games and toys to entertain him.

I decided it was time for a craft.

We made tissue paper turkeys.

We used oak tag paper, red, yellow, orange and brown tissue paper (cut into squares), google eyes and lots of glue.

I cut a feather/wing shape, a body, feet and a beak out of the paper and Nathan started glueing crumpled up squares to the paper.

We used red, orange and yellow for the feathers.

brown for the body, orange for the feet and yellow for the beak

We glued the body to the feathers and added google eyes (the turkey has a really cool 3D effect - when you glue it all together).

Cute little turkey, huh?

(the tissue paper turkey turned out really cute too)

I'd forgotten about these!

(But yours are even cuter than the ones we used to make.)

Cute little turkey-maker, too!

Now that's a clever idea! My kiddos would have gobbled this project up.
