We sang songs, read a story and manned 4 centers. One of the centers was the craft center and we made these cute little Turkey Potatoes.
I had already cut the beaks and the wattles out of construction paper and glued them to toothpicks. So all the kids had to do were poke them into the potato along with feathers. They also had to glue the eyeballs on to the potato.
I thought this would be an easy craft for the kids but it turned out to be a little more frustrating for them than I had anticipated.
A lot of the craft feathers broke because they kids were so eager to
cram place them into the turkey's back. So I ended up having to help most of them with the feathers.
And even good old Elmer's glue was no match for googly eyes and potatoes.
I guess we won't be making potato Santa Clause heads at the Christmas celebration.
