My favorite holiday is a week from today! I’m a turkey baby (I was born on Thanksgiving) so it’s only fitting that it’s my favorite. I love all the food. I could eat a whole box of stuffing in one sitting. I can also cook a mean turkey. I learned from my momma. The best part is that we are taking a day to celebrate our blessings and what we are thankful for in our lives. I have the perfect Thanksgiving craft — paper roll turkey craft.
I have always loved Thanksgiving. I have many warm memories of Thanksgivings past. I hope my boys grow up to love it as much as I do. I love doing holiday crafts with them. I try to find crafts that are easy and do not require a lot of supplies. I want it to be as fun for the boys as it is for me. If things get too complicated they get frustrated.
I’ve told you about my love for empty toilet paper rolls before. I hate throwing them out. For this craft you need empty paper rolls, construction paper, googly eyes, scissors, and tape. You can also use glue. I’m a instant gratification person. I hate waiting for the glue to dry so I’m a tape user all the way!
Empty paper roll
Brown, Orange, Red, & Yellow construction paper
Tape or Glue
Directions: Cut out the brown paper so that it will cover the paper roll for to be the body. Next cut out the feathers from the orange, red, and yellow paper. Cut out a nose from the orange paper. Cut out a gizzard from the red paper. Tape or glue the brown paper around the roll. Next arrange your feather how you want them to look. Tape or glue them to the back of the roll. Next tape or glue on your turkey face pieces. That’s it! Easy right.
One of things I am most thankful for this year is the friendships I’ve made. I am so blessed to have met so many wonderful people since we’ve moved to Richmond. We have more friends than ever and I am so thankful for every one of them. Life is much more enjoyable when you can share it with loved ones. I’ve been trying to teaching the wilds the importance of friendship by leading by example.
