stART ~ The Turkey Ball

Welcome to stART!  I hope that you will enjoy our story and art project and maybe even share your own too. All I ask is that you link back to A Mommy’s Adventures somewhere in your post by either adding my button or a text link, so that others can see all the other great projects that everyone shares too! The linky will be open all week.  Be sure to stop by and visit the different links…every week there are so many different and fun book and craft ideas!

Check out the  stART tab in my navigation bar where you can find our past stART projects.  All the books that we have read and did a stART project for are listed in alphabetical order.  I have also included a list of all the blogs that participate in stART.  **This is a work in progress so if you have participated and would like to be added to the list, leave me a comment and let me know :0)

The Turkey Ball, by David Steinberg is one of Emily and Juliette’s favorite books.  This is a cute rhyming story about some turkey’s who get all dressed up and spend the night dancing.  It is a lot of fun to read this book, which is good since we read if very often :)

For our project we made collage turkeys.   IMG_0919 IMG_0920First I cut a paper plate in half and the girls decorated it with do a dot markers.

Next, I gave them all our collage materials and they were able to decorate it however they wanted.  I love having a bag of collage material that I can just dump out onto the table.  It makes it so much easier than having to look through and collect a little of everything. 

Finally they glued on the pieces of the turkey’s body.
