Coffee Filter Turkeys and Color Mixing Puffy Paint
We started with some Play Dough Free Play, we are still using the Pumpkin Pie Dough I made in October.
First they colored a coffee filter with brown, red, yellow and orange markers. Then they sprayed it with water to make the colors run. We set them aside to dry.
While they were drying they put together the turkey bodies. I had already cut out a brown body, orange beak and red snood so they just glued that all together and added a pair of wiggly eyes.
In between the two projects we did a cute Turkey Finger Play.

The turkey is a funny bird.(Hook thumbs together and spread fingers to create turkey tail. )
Its head goes wobble, wobble.
(Wobble head back and forth. )
And all it knows is just one word:
(Hold up one finger. )
"Gobble, gobble, gobble."
(Make mouth shape with hand, opening and closing it while sounding like a turkey.)
Emily really enjoyed making puffy paint pictures during the summer so I knew that these would be a big hit at Art Group!!
I mixed up some blue and yellow puffy paint so that they could see what happened when the two colors got mixed together. This project was a lot of fun!!
