Turkey 1: My cousin Brooke, who is uber-crafty, made a darling grateful turkey. Since I love copying ideas, I decided to loosely--emphasis on loosely--use her idea. Mr. Turkey is made out of can, and each day we write something we're grateful for on a little slip of paper and put it inside Mr. Turkey. On Thanksgiving, we'll have a turkey full of things we're grateful for.
Turkey 2: Reed and Asher have taken turns being sick, so we've been stuck in the house a lot lately. We were getting a little stir-crazy, so I found a quick craft for Reed and I to do together: a pine cone turkey. We searched the yard and found exactly one pine cone. Luckily it was decently shaped, so we went with it. Reed loves him, and has played with him so much his feathers have become quite cattywampus.
Turkey 3: My friend is in charge of Activity Days (a group for 8-11 year-old girls in our church). I'm pretty sure she is the cutest Activity Days leader, ever. Anyway, she did this craft with her girls last week and was nice enough to get extra supplies for me to make one, too. He is definitely my favorite turkey of the three:
All I have left to say: Gobble.
