Thanksgiving Turkeys!


We made turkeys!

This 3-dimensional turkey is a challenging engineering S.T.E.A.M. project. 

But don't tell the kids that. It's just a fun pop-up turkey we made for Thanksgiving!

First the tail is painted and folded accordion-style. Then the turkey is colored with oil pastel, cut out, folded, and attached to a plate of the artist's own design. 

The tail, the plate, and the rest of the table setting are all glued to the folded table top, and wa la! 

An amazing pop-up turkey!

We also made these colorful turkey paintings! 

We drew them with oil pastel and added patterns and designs while pressing hard. Then we added liquid watercolor and saw the oil pastel resist the color.
We cut out our turkeys and glued them to construction paper. 

Then we cut out a LOT of autumn leaves using our die cut machine (fun!!!) and glued them to the background.  Gobble-gobble!
