Sunday, November 8, 2009 11 Post-It Notes


As a member ofSprout Band of Bloggers I get emailed some cool things. I wanted to share some awesome activities you and you kiddo can do for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday!


MAGIC LEAF DRAWING
Materials:
  • Leaf (real or fake)
  • Plain white paper
  • Crayon (any color)
Instructions:
Place the leaf on a flat surface and cover it with the piece of paper.Using the crayon, color the surface of the paper until the shape of the leaf appears. Voila, you’re a magician!




THANKSGIVING HAND TURKEY
Materials:
  • Paper
  • Glue, paste, or a glue stick
  • Crayons
  • Feathers, leaves, and any other decorations that will make your turkey one-of-a-kind

Instructions
Place your hand flat on the center of your paper. Trace around your entire hand with a crayon. Draw legs on the bottom of your turkey and use crayons to color each traced finger to look like feathers. Glue a leaf to the center of your traced hand to look like a wing and now you have a hand turkey for Thanksgiving! Can you practice saying "Gobble, gobble"?

I've always loved making the hand turkey. For even MORE crafts and fun Thanksgiving printables check out the Thanksgiving section at Sprout Online.

    I think my eldest did that craft in girl scouts years ago, but I know my youngest would love it now!

    I made one of those turkeys too, so this takes me back! Sad part is, I found one recently and held my hand up to it - it's still the same size!! LOL!

    My grand duaghter has been collecting leaves and wanting to do a project with them.. Other than a collage I couldn't come up with any other ideas. My mind just went blank!
