Thanksgiving Art

Written by  Colleen

ART TIME! Thanksgiving is almost here and I wanted to have G make a few cute decorations to gift to our family members for Thanksgiving.

I was a little over the paper plate turkey this year (he's cute but she already made 2 of those at pre-school), so I headed to Pinterest to steal, er...get inspired for some ideas.

We settled on this super cute Indian corn project and I had everything on hand!

Here's what you need:

  • White card stock 
  • Fruit Loops or Fruity Cheerios (We used Joes O's from Trader Joe's)
  • Elmer's glue
  • Brown construction paper or packing paper

Cut out a corn shape from the card stock and have your child make dots of glue.  Then they place a cheerio on each glue dot. Trace 2 leaves and glue on the back. Ta da!!!

G's finished product

Easy, fun, takes very little prep and keeps the tiny one occupied for a while! (Although there may have been 1 or 2 glue Cheerios consumed - ick.) 

Happy Thanksgiving!
