Gobble Gobble Gobble and A Gift to give
Today is a family crafting day. We are getting ready for the Turkey to come visit.
I found these cut-outs at Michaels and my boy is having the best time decorating them.
Colors are not as fun as glue!
I have notebooks filled with his scribbles and I am cutting out feather shapes from them for him to glue.
He is so in love with gluing on the feathers....on anything including the cat. lol
I remember doing a similar craft in grade school.
Every year we would get a white paper plate to cut and color and then add our traced elbow and fist as the turkey neck and head. Our art teacher would then give us stacks and stacks of floral wallpaper sample books to cut our feather shapes from, mind you, these books came from the 70's so the patterns were quite crazy.
Before we got started on this craft, we had to run by the bookstore.
I fell in love with this little story of Mistletoe.I think I really missed my calling for being a childrens librarian. I adore childrens books and this one is a keeper for sure. I urge you to stop in the childrens section and read it, and then if it strikes you, donate it to a childrens book drive this season. It could just be the little book to change a life. I will be doing exactly that with a copy.
So off I go to continue gluing and creating. Hope you are having a creative day too :)
