Kiddie Project: Leaf Turkeys

Need an easy project for a child during these beautiful autumn days? Let him/her collect leaves and make a leaf turkey! Hot glue a colorful leaf onto a piece of construction paper and tell your child it is a turkey’s big tail feathers. Then allow him/her to make a body, head, legs, etc. out of items you have around the house. Add google eyes for some extra fun!

Kiddie project: Moon Sand

If you “pinterest”, you’ve probably seen the recipe for moon or cloud sand scroll down your screen. We decided to try it out since my kids are big fans of playing in the sand. It worked really well! The original instructions called for 8 cups white flour to 1 cup of baby oil. I added between 1/4 and 1/2 cup of extra baby oil in order to make the sand stick together a little easier. If your child likes the sandbox, this project is sure to be a hit!
