Turkey Thank You Card

I am such a lover of Thanksgiving-it's my favorite holiday! I love the warm, happy, feeling and the smell of food cooking. I love the kick off of Christmas season. And I love the feelings of gratitude that come at this time of year. I like to try to help my kids recognize their blessings and say thank you, and one way I do this is to have them write thank you notes. Here's a cute, kid friendly thank you card that you can make with your little ones this year! They'll love this!
- Americana Acrylics 2oz - Cadmium Yellow
- Americana Acrylics 2oz - Burnt Orange
- Americana Acrylics 2oz - Country Red
- Americana Acrylics 2oz - Sable Brown
- Construction paper or card stock
- Googly Eyes
Start by cutting out a turkey body and gluing it to white paper or cardstock:
Then add the eyes, beak and snood (did you know that's what they call the little thing that dangles from the turkey's beak?). I also added some little turkey feet.
Now, squirt out some paint on a paper plate and have your kid dip his finger in it. Dab it off just a little and then begin to create feathers all around the turkey's body. Switch colors frequently and make him vibrant and fun.
Glue all of this to a piece of card stock that is folded to make a card and have your kids write thank you notes to teachers, relatives, friends, or others they are grateful for.
(This could also make a cute name card for the Thanksgiving table!)
