With our Thanksgiving coming up this weekend, I had the daycare kids work on a turkey craft.
We used a cheap paper plate for the base, and glued all the handprint "feathers" around the outer edge. Then we painted a small dessert paper plate brown, and glued that in the centre. In the centre of the small plate we glued another circle cut from construction paper and glued on the facial features. A few dyed chicken feathers were tucked under the dessert plate (just because I had them).
This guy went a little wonky in the face,
but these are the creations I like the best from two-year olds.
On another note, I don't think I ever showed you the creative chair my son made in his last year of high school. This was an art project that they do each year with the Grade 12 classes. They had to make something creative with a chair in a theme. My son knew he wanted to make something military, and he wanted it to be chair with army tank treads. We thought it seemed a little far fetched, but we helped him find all the odd bits and pieces at flea markets and our basement. It turned out amazing once the spray paint went over all the wood and metal bits of junk on there. This was one of the chairs that I had refinished in white for my daughter for university. We got one last use out of the $4 chair ;) His art teacher asked if she could have the chair back to show other students. As much as I love what my son accomplished here, and I think it looks great, I was happy I didn't have to find space for it in my small home.
Thanks for stopping by!
