Turkeys On Parade

Tis the season for lots of gobble gobble! Maddie has been busily creating a parade of turkeys at our house this week.

During a play date over the weekend Maddie and her friend had fun make these quick and easy coffee filter turkeys with washable markers and a spritz of water.

Earlier in the week Maddie took it upon her self to grab some craft supplies and...

make this adorable little fellow all on her own!

Maddie is at such a great age right now where all I have to do is provide her with a few materials and she is able to make a project all on her own. It's the best way to keep her occupied while I do a few chores around the house! This turkey was made with a paper plate and bowl that Maddie painted and then glued together.

Maddie's Play-Doh basket was filled with materials to make turkeys this week too! She had some seasonally appropriate colors (although pink ended up in the mix too), a pumpkin cookie cutter, feathers, googly eyes and bits of pipecleaner.

Play-Doh sculptures have been a big hit in the house lately and keep Maddie occupied for extended periods of time too!

We did the playdough turkeys today. It's great to have something that takes practically no preparation time yet entertains them for such a loooong time!! Love all your turkeys.
