Sunday Crafts

My older 2 are always looking for something to make, color, paint or build and while I love to see all the things they make sometimes it is nice to put them to “work”.

They think it is all fun and crafts but really they are helping me. And all with the bonus that they are occupied. This leaves me “free” to do something. You know like, unload the dishwasher, change the laundry before I forget, again {and have to wash it AGAIN}

So for this Sunday Craft, we made Pet Turkeys that {Rock}.

These cute little guys were made from just a few materials and all I had at home.

Cut one feather shape from each color felt. {We are using these for table decorations at Thanksgiving so I needed 13}

Assemble tail feathers in a fan shape, gluing together.

For the kids

Send your kids out in the yard to hunt for rocks. You may have to clean and dry them {a great warmer day activity for kids}

Paint each rock brown, covering all sides.

Now these adorable Little Turkeys are ready to grace your Table.

I am super excited to see these little guys on our First Thanksgiving table. We are hosting this year and I can’t wait to have a house full of Family and good food.
