My blog features the activities and projects I do with my children. I have 3 children age 11, 7 and 4. I watch an infant, plus my 4 year old nephew! This blog highlights the activities/projects we create during the week. It also provides a way for me to organize all of the activities and projects we do, and it is a great way to share the projects/activities. I hope this blog will become a great resource and inspire creativity.

Day 1 of the week - The theme this week is Turkeys. The letter of the week is T, t and the number of the week is 18.
Project - Stick Turkey - I drew a turkey shaped body onto the back of a cereal box and cut it out. I cut out feet, a beak and the turkey's beard out of the same cereal box. Connor and Lauren painted the feet and beak orange and the beard red. After the paint dried, Connor and Lauren glued the feet, beak and beard onto the turkey body. They also glued on googly eyes. Then, they used 12 colored craft sticks and glued them to the back of the turkey body for feathers. I asked Connor and Lauren to make a pattern with their craft sticks and to lay them out in front of them in the pattern they chose. Materials Needed - cereal box, or cardboard, orange and red paint, scissors, googly eyes, 12 colored craft sticks, craft glue
