Happy Thanksgiving!

Gobble Gobble!

Happy Thanksgiving! I had a wonderful time at the OKCMOA's Tiny Tuesday program this month sharing my fun turkey project with children ages 2-5.

Each child began with a piece of orange tag board. Then they went through the assembly line to get all the pieces.

I pre-cut the turkey body, heads and feathers. The idea with the turkey was to match the color of our turkey paper with the color of our embellishments. For example, kids glued yellow pom poms, real feathers, buttons and jewels on the yellow paper feather.

First we glued our turkey bodies on our paper.

Then we glued our feather and legs and began to add our embellishments. Then they could add crayon to really customize their turkeys.

Even my boys got to come with me since they were out of school. They were great helpers!

Everyone had a lot of fun with this color matching turkey adventure! Here are some of our finished pieces. Happy Thanksgiving!

You will need:
-card stock in variety of colors
-scissors
-glue
-feathers, beans, beads, pom poms, jewels, sequins, buttons and more.
-glue stick
-elmer's glue
-crayons

MaryAnn F. Kohl, art book author said...

I follow your blog, and recommend it on my website as one of my favorites. My name is MaryAnn Kohl. I am the author of over 20 books on art for kids. I am writing because I need your help to win a wonderful education grant, and I hope you can let your blog readers know about the grant competition. It takes votes to win, daily votes if possible.

Specifically, I am nominated for an amazing education grant from Pepsi. If I win, I will travel the USA in 2011 and bring hands-on art workshops to 6000+ teachers whose schools do not have art programs! Ultimately this would impact 150,000+ children who have no art at school. I am asking that you vote for my project, and if you have anyone in your address book who cherishes creativity, I hope you will invite them to vote too!

There are 3 ways to vote (and you can use all three every day if you want to... "power voting!"
1.) Direct vote at: http://www.refresheverything.com/greatartkids
(You have to sign up first with the program to be a verfied voter.)
2.) Text your vote - no sign up needed: Text these numbers: 104840 To Pepsi's phone: 73774
3.) Go to Facebook and vote through the Pepsi Voting App. This is pretty easy.
Note: If you get lost on the Pepsi site, just put MaryAnn Faubion Kohl in the search box and it will take you to my voting page. Thank you so much for helping me achieve my goal of bringing art to schools all over the USA. I'd love to come to your town!

Thank you for considering posting my need for votes! You can delete this comment if you need to. It doesn't really fit in this area of your blog.
