Handprint Turkey Shirts

IMG 9293
I just had to stop in quickly and show off the turkey shirts my boys made this year!
Its kind of become a tradition for us to make these.

My four year old had a lot of fun picking out paint colors for the feathers.
Not to mention getting to paint his hand 5 times!
I drew on the eyes, gobbler (you know, that red thing…), and the legs.

Who would have thought a 19 month old wouldn’t want to have his hand painted?
I had hoped for matching turkey shirts, but I was lucky just to get the brown handprint. 
So I painted on the feathers myself. 
Ignore how sloppy it all is. I was, uh, pretending a toddler painted it. 
But really, I wasn’t aiming for perfection.


And I had to show off this adorable Thankful For book my 4 year old made at daycare!!
It has three pages and he was to write on each page something he was thankful for.
Page 1: Daddy, Page 2: God, Page 3: Transformers
Apparently mommy didn’t make the cut.
But Transformers did!!
Maybe if there was a 4th page I might be on there…
Regardless of the fact that he completely left out the woman who gave birth to him, 
I’m super proud of his writing this all out by himself!
His teacher helped with the spelling, but the writing is all his.
Genius, I tell you. Pure genius. 🙂
Happy Thanksgiving, friends!!
I actually have a free printable to share with you on Friday, so I’ll see you then!
