Last week we read another silly turkey book, Gobble Gobble Crash. There's just something ridiculously funny about turkey's. :)
And since we are a little obsessed with handprint crafts (see here & here) I thought it would be fun to turn the boys' hands into turkeys and then "crash" them into barnyard scenes.
Our first step was to build the barnyards. The boys painted craft sticks white for a fence.
When they were dry I trimmed them down, and also cut out barns & trees. Then we looked closely at some pictures in the book for inspiration and glued all our pieces in to place.
|both the boys are becoming a lot neater with glue|
|mini man's gluing still requires sound effects though|
Once the glue the was dry we painted our hands and covered the barnyard with turkeys.
After the turkeys dried we tried drawing on some feet and beaks but the color didn't show up too well.
Mini Man really enjoyed this craft, he loves getting paint on his hands. :) After we finished with the barnyard he asked for more paper so he could continue making handprints.
In case I don't make it back before, I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!
