Thankful


We were in charge of decorations for our church visitation meeting and I decided we'd do a little turkey craft for some centerpieces. We then combined this week's Unplugged Project, Thankful, by adding some cut-out leaves with thankful thoughts written on them.

The turkey really isn't a hard craft, but the youngest boys just wanted to eat the gum drops. Then Will poked himself with the toothpick and that was then end of it for him. I should have gotten rounded toothpicks. Hind sight...


Will did complete one turkey, but Jeff and I finished the rest by ourselves.


I was thankful when it was over. :)

For more Thankful projects, head over to Unplug Your Kids.

I love it. What a cute idea. We made similar turkeys out of small pumpkins and construction paper. We wrote what we were Thankful for on the feathers. I will be posting the pics this week. Check them out.

What cute turkeys! I've never seen them done like that and I know my boys would love them. We'll definitely be making some. Thanks for sharing.

Great idea, but I had to giggle at how you were thankful when it was over. Some things never go according to plans!
