Thanksgiving Week Activity: Make Placecards (and practice handwriting too!)

The idea for these cute turkey placecards came from Frugal Family Fun Blog. Valerie made them by cutting some flower-shaped sticky notes in half to form the tail feathers of the turkey. I didn't have any of those, but I did have some scrapbooking paper which I cut into a similar shape.
We used a half-circle of brown construction paper and some yellow sticky-backed circles. He drew on the snoods and glued on some googly eyes.

He had an interesting place to put his sticky circles to keep track of them.
We will go back and paint the snoods red once the glue has dried. In no time he had made a whole rafter of turkeys.
(He didn't even realize that he was practicing handwriting.)
