Turkey Puppet!

This is a repost from last year!
Day 3 of the week - The theme this week is Turkeys. The letter of the week is S, s and the number of the week is 17.
Project - Turkey Puppet - I saw this project in the November 2005 issue of Parents Magazine. Connor and Lauren love playing with puppets, so this was a perfect project for them. Directions: Use a 5 1/8 brown circle scallop card, or cut your own from card stock using scalloped scissors - this is what I did. Trace a leaf four or five times onto colored paper (we used dark orange). Cut each leaf out. Add glue, then glitter to the leaves (Connor and Lauren applied the glue with a paint brush, but they left of the stem of each leaf bare for easier gluing. They used a variety of glitter colors) - let dry. Glue leaves to the back of the paper circle with glittered sides facing up. Cut out a wattle and beak. Glue the wattle and beak to the circle and glue on googly eyes. Glue a large craft stick to the back of the circle. Materials needed - dark brown scallop card or card stock, scalloped scissors, dark orange card stock - or any color for the leaves, red card stock, yellow card stock, scissors, glue, paintbrush, large craft stick, colored glitter, googly eyes
Learning Activities - I have been using the workbook Everything for Early Learning Preschool workbook. (I purchased it at Wal-Mart)
Today's Activities:
The letter S, s- recognition, and beginning sound
The number 17 - recognition and writing
