Thankful TurkeysPosted: November 6, 2011
Both boys were home sick all week last week, sick enough to have to miss school but energy enough to challenge my last nerve. In an attempt to keep them busy, indoors, we did a lot of arts and crafts. Project number one: Thankful Turkeys. A fun, multiple step project that took most of the morning. Drying time for the markers and paints worked nicely as snack breaks. Tyson began the project by cutting one inch strips of paper. Good practice for him: he had to slow down, line the paper up to the one, and cut carefully.
Meanwhile, Jake decorated lunch bags with his favorite dabber dot markers. The bags would become the body of the turkey.
Jake is thankful for: Mommy, Daddy, and Tyson, Grandparents, Umizoomi, and Target.
Tyson is thankful for: Mommy and Daddy, Grandparents, his Transformers, and his toys and trains.
