It's time to talk turkey!
The past two months we have decorated our door/windows with stained glass tissue paper crafts, so with November here it was time to do that once again!
These turkeys were inspired by this pin
But I wanted a craft where the kids could do the cutting of the 'frame' and knew the frame for the one above would be too difficult!
So I made a 'revised' template using the 'idea' from the pin, but one that my kinders could cut:
(You can download the template by clicking the picture above or clicking HERE).
I folded 9x12 size brown construction paper in half
and traced the template
so that the end 'product' looked like this:
I cut up a variety of tissue paper into little squares
and pre-cut wax paper to match the size of the paper
Now it was time to get crafty!
The kids 'silly swirled' the glue all over the wax paper and put the squares of tissue paper all over it
They then cut out their turkey template
And glued it on top of the wax paper!
Look at all the different types of turkeys we got!
We added 2 googly eyes, a beak and waddle to each to complete the craft!
They now decorate our door and windows!
If you like the look of the original pin, you could then 'trim' the turkeys so that it has the thin brown frame or they look just as cute in the rectangle frame!
(I did have some kids cut off the turkey middle as they cut, but it was easy to fix and you can't even see the cut line on the finished product!)
There are a few more variations of 'stained glass tissue paper turkey crafts' I found on Pinterest, so if these don't suit your fancy, but sure to check out the other ideas!
And speaking of Pinterest, have you visited the Fall Linky Party going on on The Primary Pack?
It is a 'make and take' so be sure to add your wonderful pins to it too!
