Here is an activity where we used materials from the nature - parts of a plant, to do stamping. This time, we are making a turkey.
First, I made JS trace the picture of a turkey using carbon paper.
Next, we gathered some leaves and soft branches from our garden.
We used the leaves for the larger feathers. I made him do the leaves stamping on a different piece of paper and then we cut them out and stuck them on the picture accordingly.
The following day, we used the soft branches to do some stampings for the smaller feathers.
Here's how the turkey looks like. Well, it isn't that fantastic I kind of like the large feathers.
Now that it's the month of November, perhaps your children can try this as a Thanksgiving art and craft activity!
