It took me awhile to come up with a good Thanksgiving class display. I knew I wanted the title to be "Gobble 'til you Wobble!" but I couldn't figure out a good turkey craft to go along with that. I eventually came up with the idea to take a picture of the kids with puffy cheeks, like their mouths were stuffed with food. Some kids chose just to smile, which was fine, too. For the project, I first had the kids marble paint on construction paper, using fall colors for the paint and the paper. When they were dry, I cut out feathers for our turkeys. With the template I had, I was able to get six feathers from each piece of paper. Everyone shared the feathers so that our turkeys could be more colorful. I cut out very simple turkey bodies from brown paper lunch sacks (mainly because I was low on brown construction paper). The kids glued a bunch of feathers to the back of their turkey.

The kids in my class made bracelets for each other today. They did such a great job! I received some metallic alphabet beads, colorful faceted beads and sparkle elastic cords from CraftProjectIdeas.com.
They were so dedicated to making the perfect bracelet for their friend. I loved watching them! The holes in the beads were big enough that they didn't have any problems putting them on the cords. I just made sure the letters went on in the right order. They all seemed to really like their bracelets and wore them the rest of the day!
