Here's a craft that my four year old twins had a BLAST making all by themselves. (With the exception of actually pouring the paint)!
Our Thanksgiving Turkey was created from a toilet paper roll (which the kids saved just for projects like these). A sunny day and a couple bottles of paint and a turkey was created!
Scraps of Red and Yellow/Orange Foam or construction paper
Fall Paint colors including Brown
Craft Tube or Toilet Paper Roll
Newspaper for protecting your paint surface
How To Make a Toilet Paper Roll (Craft Tube) Turkey:
* Optional: Paint your Toilet Paper roll brown- we chose to do this step because we still wanted to paint!~
Paint the paper plate any way that pleases you.
Add a face to your turkey: Triangle beak (from orange/yellow) , a waddle (red) and add googly eyes. Allow this face to dry before trying to add the tail feathers (paper plate)
Once the feathers and face are dry glue them together.
Enjoy your creation!!

Over the years, I have evolved and grown into my job as a mother, as my family has evolved and grown in size. With each child, my world changed, not only in mathematical terms but also in dynamics, imagination and creativity!
In addition to making sure each child gets some undivided mommy attention, playing dolls, reading books, cars, blocks, cooking and sewing etc...I allow them to explore their world and focus on creating kids crafts and art projects that cater to their current interests.
So this website grew from a place to store all our holiday kids crafts to one that shows off our home school learning crafts on the topics of the kid's choice.
The children in turn have become creative designers and are working on their own craft ideas, personal interest websites and business blogs. Yes, they are only in elementary school. However, in this house we focus on each child choosing a business to explore and create.
