The theme this week is Thanksgiving!
Project: Thanksgiving Placemat! Ty and Addie constructed their very own construction paper Turkeys out of pre-cut pieces. They glued the pieces to white paper. Next, I painted Ty and Addie's hands with water color paint to make a turkey. I painted each of their palms and thumbs brown, and their remaining fingers different colors. Then they each pressed their hands onto the same white paper as their construction paper turkeys. I added feet and a beak. Ty and Addie gave each of their turkey's one eye with black marker. Ty and I added letter stickers to spell Gobble, gobble. We also added leaf stickers. I wrote Gobble, gobble on Addie's paper with orange marker. We glued the white paper onto colored card stock. Finally I used Contact paper to seal/laminate the placemats! Ty was sooooo excited to use his placemat!
