Bobo has stayed home sick from preschool the past few days. Cooped inside on a rainy day with a sick toddler, I’ve been brainstorming ideas to keep both of us from going stir-crazy.
Today, I decided our project du jour would be to make paper handprint turkeys. Bobo loves craft projects, especially anything involving glue, which she doesn’t get to use much at home. We’re having my entire family over for Thanksgiving dinner in a few weeks, so I thought it would be fun to make turkey namecards for everyone’s plates.
I guess I should have experimented with the first one before I embarked on making 16 turkeys. Bobo had a ball making the first turkey (hers), but then quickly got bored and moved on to something else. So much for my mother-daughter bonding project. I ended up making the other 15 turkeys myself, but I think they turned out pretty cute.
Now, if only I can figure out how to actually make a real turkey, I will be set. 1-800-DOMINOES will be on speed dial just in case.
