stART ~ Five Silly Turkeys

A Story + Art = A Great stART!
Welcome to stART! I hope that you will enjoy our book and art project and maybe even share your own too! For an explanation of stART click here.


This week we read Five Silly Turkeys, by Selina Yoon. This is a fun counting book where five turkeys have a great time doing some very silly things. Emily enjoyed pretending to dance and twirl around like the turkeys.

We have already made a few turkey projects already, but when I went to my friend’s house and saw this cute q-tip painting turkey I knew that Emily was going to make one to go along with this book this week! (Thank you Dawn for the idea!!)

I spread paint out on a piece of white paper and then gave Emily q-tips to spread out the paint. I told her to make it look like the turkeys we have been making.IMG_0267 Emily added a wiggly eye, and painted on the beak, snood and feet.


Emily’s finished Turkey Painting.

It's so much fun to see all the different ways to draw a turkey!

April said...

You have quite the little artist!

Cassie said...

Great project! We have been reading that book this week also.

I am so very impressed! There is no way Anna would draw anything even remotely resembling an actual turkey, and she is quite a bit older.

What a beautiful turkey she painted! We'll be doing lots with turkey books and craft projects in the next few days too. So much fun!

Jenny said...

That is a cute and simple idea! How fun!

Elise said...

Wow, I am so impressed with Emily's turkey. She did such a fantastic job. I would be framing that!

I am bookmarking the See Saw Ryhme for baby number 3 - it's very sweet.

This has been one of my sons favorite books this month. I am really impressed with how well she did with the q-tip painting. It looks great!
