When my six-year old art student requested that I come and do some art at her birthday celebration, I virtually screamed YES! I appreciate undertaking art parties simply because the children are generally so excited to see the inventive tables and to use their hands and make stuff. I asked my student what she had in thoughts, and she stated TURKEYS? like it was a queries. Yes to the turkeys, I stated! My initially Thanksgiving turkey craft from cardboard was hatched.
I searched the net and identified this turkey craft from an outstanding art teacher named Cristina that I decided to copy. Why re-invent the wheel? Cristina is a small mysterious, I cannot obtain her on Instagram, but she has a weblog and an AMAZING Flickr feed which you ought to verify out quickly!!
And now, here’s how we produced our cardboard turkeys…
Supplies for turkey craft:
~ Cardboard reduce into turkey shapes
~ Glue gun (for placing turkey together… the kid do not use it)
~ Card stock reduce into feather shapes
~ Oil pastels
~ Googly eyes
~ White college glue
Step-by-step guidelines for turkey craft:
1. Prepare the cardboard turkeys ahead of time by cutting out two shapes: 1 will be the physique, the other will be the neck and head.
two. Making use of the glue gun, attach the neck to the physique by overlapping just a small bit.
three. Set out the cardboard turkeys and all the other supplies on the table. I seldom if ever provide a sample for my art classes. My classes have a tendency to be really open-ended and not as crafty. But this time about I believed it would be valuable to set out an instance (produced by my daughter). At birthday parties, children have a tendency to come and go and with a sample, they do not have to maintain relying on my for guidelines.
Let the children generate!!
I appreciate how every single turkey appears various. My worry with placing out an instance is that the children will really feel restricted. But fortunately that didn’t take place. I appreciate these so considerably!! Unquestionably a rainbow theme taking place. So considerably yummy colour!
Thank you, once more, to art-teacher-extraordinaire Cristina for the thought!
