Last week Lily brought home a project that was to be completed by then entire family. My first thought was "ugh" (bad mom, I know). We (I) put it off for a few days.
I finally got over myself and we attempted the project. The goal was to decorate a turkey however we wanted, using whatever we wanted. I asked Lily what she thought we should use. She wanted to use fabric (I wonder where she got that from?). So, we went through my scrap pile for appropriate colored fabrics. I'm glad I save everything because those itty bitty scraps were perfect for this.
There was lots of cutting and gluing involved. Alex had a ball cutting all the little bits of fabric, that was right up his alley. Lily and I, with a bit of help from Dad carefully placed all the little bits of fabric on the turkey. I think it turned out quite nice, but the best part was that we all did it together - and it was FUN!
