Anyway, her adorable kids came over and we played outside but stopped to do a quick craft for Thanksgiving.
Wooden Spoon Turkeys!
I originally got the idea from the great blog Ramblings of a Crazy Woman. I was excited to do this and only changed it up slightly from what she did. I am planning on bringing this craft for all the kids to do on Thanksgiving Day.
It is super easy if you prepare it ahead and put all the materials in separate bags. Then, all you will need is glue for the actual craft on Turkey Day. My goal is to NOT use paint.
1 wooden spoon
6-8 multicolored craft sticks (or paint your own)
triangle beak and wattle cut from felt
small woven trivet (pack of 3 from dollar tree)
(You can leave out the trivet or maybe cut our felt or paper for the back)
Start by gluing your eyes on the front of the spoon.
This would be Ella's artistic interpretation.
Next, glue on your gobbler thingy. It's called a wattle but I had to look that up.
Or is it a snood? I seriously have no idea.
I'm going with gobbler thingy.
Then glue on the beak. Let it all dry.
Then turn the spoon over and glue the sticks in a fan pattern.
Put a whole mess of glue on the back...
Then glue your trivet (or felt/paper piece to the back).
Do not turn over until completely dry!
Cati's fabulous turkey!

Happy Turkey Making!
