Remember all those painting tools we played with yesterday? Now we have turkeys! The girls basically did these themselves – I did cut out paper turkey bodies and felt beaks and waddles at their request. Here’s their instructions, more or less….
First step – cut up all your artwork into small pieces and throw them all over the floor. This will be called the paper market. Using a feather tracer-stencil-thing, trace and cut-out all your pretty feathers.
Next step – Arrange your feathers till they look their best and start gluing them behind your turkey body. We glued down just the bottom of our turkey body until all the feathers were done, then glued it down the rest of way.
Last step – add eyes, beak, waddle, and feet and you’re done!
(A note from mom – You could use any paintings you have laying around, magazines, wrapping paper, etc. Have fun!)
