toddler art tuesday {#10}


It's been cloudy, cold and icky for the last few days here in North Alabama so Jake and I have been hiding indoors as much as possible. Guess that means it's time for another...

Since Thanksgiving is just around the corner, we took advantage of some fun turkey day crafts. 
This tree leaf turkey was a big hit! Jake loved picking out just the right leaves for his feathers. Bigger kids can add more and more feathers {leaves} for a huge fluffy turkey!





I cut some simple shapes out of construction paper for the turkey body and face. Jake was pretty psyched to get to use the glue stick to attach everything together.
{It's the little things, right?}




Jake was so proud of his turkey! He even named him "Gobble". That kid... 






Who knew construction paper would be so exciting?? Jake had so much fun scribbling all over his headdress piece, but the real thrill came when he put this on. 
He wears his thing every. single. day. {Indian dance and war cry included}

I cut out the feathers using the same pattern as my paper feather garland. And the strap is just brown construction paper that's made long enough to fit his head. I would think an older kid would have more fun decorating the headdress. Maybe use white paper for the strap and they can deck it out with drawings and sequins and whatever else you have on hand!




Chief Jake is a pretty happy dude!
