On Monday, the house was a wreck from not being home Saturday or Sunday. So we didn't do anything special. The kid finished coloring their pages until a certain 4 year old boy started throwing crayons across the room "just for fun"! After that, they got up and cleaned their rooms while I cleaned the rest of the house. We ended the day with 6 fussy kids going to bed about 30 minutes early. Then Chase and I had a pizza date in the living room while we stayed up WAY too late watching episodes of Castle on Amazon.
Today, day 7, we made Turkey Headbands. This was another inexpensive craft, and quite fun. I will say, I had to make Chance's for him, and Allison needed quite a bit of help. Also, the original craft uses construction paper for feather. I bought actual feathers, but I don't think it was a wise idea. They make the headband too top heavy and the turkey tends to fall forward. Next year we will use construction paper feathers! I'll add pics tomorrow of them wearing their headbands. Tonight we had to wait for the glue to dry. For now, here is the link to the craft instructions and some pics of the kids assembling theirs.
I bought two packages of feathers,
but I think one would have been enough.
The small package of construction paper doesn't have brown
so we had to buy the large package, but with 6 kids, we'll use it eventually!!
It's blurry, but . . . that face!!! Melt my heart!
Chance watching me make his!!
