Welcome to Day 2 of the Fabulous Fall Blog Hop!!! I hope you're having fun!! I'm guessing you just came over after visiting Yvette at The Little Things. Remember - if you came here first make sure you start at the beginning with Cheryl at Cards by CG. :)
For those that know a little about my style you'll know that my little ones often 'help' with my creations; I am first and foremost a Mommy!! Well, the post today may seem a little cheesy so I hope you don't mind!!!
This coming up week we will be visiting my Parents and my siblings (my dear sister is leaving for an LDS mission), so she will be gone for two years. Since we are not able to visit my family as often as we'd like, we try to bring cute little homemade gifts from my little ones to give to the family. It may be as simple as a card or a picture; but with Thanksgiving coming up we wanted to make something a little different. So here's what we made. :)
ROCK TURKEYS!!!!!!My little ones had a blast making these fun little guys! We went for a walk and found some rocks that were a little bit bigger than the palm of their hands and a smaller one as a head. I traced their hands onto white cardstock and let them color them. I cut them after they were colored because I knew that there was no way my youngest would be able to just color the paper (my whole table would have been blue). :) They didn't want me to paint the rocks (like I had originally wanted); instead they wanted to color them with crayons. We did use a sharpie for the eyes; my little girl is old enough that she colored the eyes and mouth on hers (the turkey on the right). I just hot glued the rocks together as well as hot glued the 'feathers' to the 'body'.
Like I said, a super cheesy post!!! Nothing fancy, just a fun activity to do with any child. :) I'd love to hear about fun craft activities you've done with a child in your life!
Thank you so much for stopping by!!! Don't forget about the blog candy I'm offering (click here for more info) as well as the blog candy from our wonderful sponsors (click here for that specific post on Cheryl's blog).
