November is upon on us! The bats are all packed up… bring on the turkeys. We had a few extra kids over the other day and I thought Thanksgiving art for the kids was just what the day called for. The house was full of busy chatter and our creative table quickly became the place to be!
Turkeys were my plan and I was so excited to see what these creative kids would do with the Thanksgiving art materials I was providing. As I pulled out the supplies the kids immediately started grabbing. The only instruction I gave was to create something for Thanksgiving.
Our Thanksgiving Art Materials
- egg carton cups (I cut up an egg carton ahead of time)
- dyed noodles (still left from our busy bag event)
- googly eyes
- tan paint
- colored foam pieces
How cool are these turkeys? Every piece of art was unique. While they admired each other’s work, it was obvious that they all had their own creation in mind. (The artists range from 3 – 8 years old.)
I’m usually busy at the table… refilling supplies, chatting about the process and taking up close pics (for you guys of course). My Mom snapped this one. It’s such a great reminder that I need to step back once in a while and really see it from this view. They are all so intent. So involved in their work. It’s one of my favorite things to see!
What materials have you supplied for Thanksgiving art?
