One Thankful Turkey

I saw this cute craft idea on a post by my blog friend Bobbi. When I saw it I knew I had to try it because we have been really working on being thankful in our house and since Jamison loves to do crafts I thought this would be a good activity for us to do.

First I printed off a turkey coloring page and we colored only the turkey, not his feathers.

Then we cut out the turkey body so that we could add our own feathers. See Jamison concentrating on her cutting.

Here's my turkey all cut out. Jamison told me that I did a great job coloring. I just love her.

Caleb wants you to know that he was there too! He colored his entire turkey. He's my turkey!

I cut feathers out of construction paper and we wrote what we are thankful for.

Jamison and I had similar items and we didn't even copy. I guess she is a little like her mom.

Here's the finished product.

They will hang on our fridge as a reminder to be thankful.

I love the simplicity of this project! Such a fun way to teach the little ones about gratitude. I've been wanting to do some "thankful" projects and now that we're all on the mend with being sick, I'll probably try to do a couple of fun things over the weekend. This might be one of them. ;)
