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 2 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 Wreath - I found the idea for the Turkey Wreath on the website http://www.dltk-holidays.com/thanksgiving/crafts.html click on Turkey Crafts and then Turkey Wreath. Directions: Trace a small plate and a large plate onto a piece of cardboard ( I used and empty cereal box). Cut strips of red, yellow and orange construction paper (about 1 1/2 inches by 4 inches). Glue the strips into rolls. Glue the rolls of construction paper onto the wreath. I let Connor decide on a pattern and he did all of the gluing. Draw a beak onto orange paper and a wobble onto red paper and cut out. Trace your child's foot onto orange construction paper and cut out (fold the construction paper in half and trace the foot and then cut to get two identical feet). Connor traced his own foot. Draw a footprint shaped body onto brown construction paper and cut out. Connor cut out the body shape by himself. Glue the body, 2 feet, beak and wobbler onto the turkey and add 2 googly eyes. Connor glued all of the parts by himself. Materials Needed - cardboard (cereal box), large plate, small plate, red, yellow, orange, brown construction paper, googly eyes, scissors, glue, pencil
