Square Turkey Craft



Here is a fun and simple little Thanksgiving craft you can make with your kids!

Supplies:
  • Craft Foam (brown, orange, red, and any colors for the feathers)
  • Googly Eyes (I used 1" size. You can use any size.)
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Craft Time!

1. Cut out a square with the brown craft foam.
2. Cut out 6 feathers using any colors of craft foam you'd like.




3. Cut out a small orange triangle for the beak, 2 orange legs, and a red tear-drop shape for that weird red thing hanging from the turkey's throat. (Not sure what that is called.) :)


4. Glue all the pieces together! The feathers go on the back around the sides and top of the square. The eyes, beak and red thingy go on top, and the legs glue to the bottom.


All done!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I love crafting with my kids. I am trying to implement cute little crafts for my kids and I to do together throughout this month and next as a way to create memories- we are definitely making this one! There is a great book out by Susan Newman, Ph.D titled, Little Things Long Remembered: "Making Your Children Feel Special Every Day." The book is full of hundreds of suggestions broken in convenient timeframes!

Crafts & Activities for BOYS!

It can sometimes be tricky to find crafts and learning activities that will capture a little boy's attention span. Believe me, I know! I have 3 little boys and so many of our crafts and activities are along themes of things that little boys often love! Cars, Trucks, Planes, Bugs, Dinosaurs, Legos, Sports, Animals, Space, etc. So here is our collection of tried and true crafts and activities for boys! 
(P.S. And don't worry, I also have 2 little girls, and can verify that each of these are also 100% girl approved too!)

Build a Dinosaur!

Our recent theme for Preschool@Home was DINOSAURS! This is a great (and super easy) activity for helping kids learn and recognize shapes
(This game is also a great way for preschoolers to learn!) 
This Dinosaur building activity uses craft foam, which means it can be used over and over again! And the possibilities are truly endless.
Or use some glue on the shapes and it could also become a one-of-a-kind dinosaur craft! No matter how you use it, this simple dinosaur activity will produce some very unique prehistoric creatures!
