Thanksgiving Crafts

Dave's cousin Tammy sent the boys a bunch of holiday crafts that I could do with them. Tammy is an elementary school teacher and is so crafty and creative. So I can take no credit for any of this because she basically put everything into little kits with instructions so all I have to do is pull the kit out and let the boys get creative. Colt LOVES it, he thinks "school time" and "craft time" is the best. 
 These turkeys were so fun to make, I think they would be really cute as a table decoration at Thanksgiving as well. Colt likes to use his as a puppet and Jax prefers to use his as a hat (only it keeps falling off).
 Jax is on the left (obviously I had to help him quite a bit) but Colt did almost all of his on his own. Tammy sent me a pattern to cut out the body and the feathers so I cut and then let the boys glue.
 We also made lions earlier in the week so Colt asked me to take a picture of him with his lion and turkey.
Case watched us get crafty and happily moved all around on the floor rolling everywhere and spitting up on everything!!

The turkeys turned out SO cute!! And I love Colt's lion. How fun. I am glad your boys are enjoying some fun art projects. I need to do some more with my kiddos. Dylan is really into art! He is so carefully and thoughtful about what he does. He is a lefty so I think he has some creative gene! Take care!
