A Very Thankful Turkey
1. Begin a few sessions before your Thanksgiving break. Have your client make one or two feathers each session, focusing on what they are thankful for. This will help them put some thought and time into what they are thankful for, and will result in some different and unique feathers for your turkey.
2. This traditional thankful turkey involves writing what your client is thankful for on each feather. For this project, my client and I took it a step further, and wrote ways to show appreciation on the back of each feather.
3. Hand-print turkeys! These are fun and messy, perfect for little ones. Paint your client's hand, then have them stamp their hand print on to a piece of paper. Write or have your client draw a picture of what they are thankful for on each finger/feather.
4. Pine cone turkeys we found probably need some heavy duty glue, but turned out to be super cute! Write on each feather, stick them into the pine cone, add some googly eyes, and voila!
