We have a large supply of magazines at our house to look through and search for pictures in. Recently we searched through the food related magazines for pictures we could use to create a food full turkey. It was a little challenging to find large pictures of food. Why large pictures? I had created feather templates out of an old cereal box that was the size we were going to need to make the turkey’s feathers for our turkey craft and they were pretty large.
Putting Together Our Thanksgiving Craft
We flipped through a number of magazines to find large pictures. Thankfully I had picked up several cooking magazines from the laundry room in my mother in-law’s apartment complex last time we visited her. They are filled with pictures the size we needed. (I had fun just looking through them.)
When all the feathers were in place, the turkey was glued onto a large piece of construction paper and declared done.
When people see the food filled turkey, they will probably notice how pretty he is. They won’t know how many wonderful skills JDaniel used to put it together. He had to search for large pictures, trace feathers and cut them out. He had to determine how much of the feather should be glued to the back of the turkey and how much to have displayed. Deciding how to arrange the feathers also needed to be done. A food full turkey craft provided the opportunity to work on a variety of skills.
What would be a good book to go with this craft?
