Coffee filter turkeys

My kids love this craft so much. We do this the easiest way possible.

image

Here is what we used:
Markers
Coffee filter
Construction paper
Glue

With the brown paper we cut out a bowling pin shape. Then take coffee filters fold them up several times and let the kids color try to fill in all the white spots.  You will want to refold and fill in anything that didn’t get colored. Unfold glue together and draw a simple face.

Salt Dough Pumpkins

These little salt dough pumpkins are super simple.  If your kids can roll a ball they can help with their own pumpkin.

We used:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup water
Food coloring (you can use paint after if you perfer)
stick for the stem
Toothpick/Skewer

Mix salt, flour, and water. I used a mixer to get my color to mix evenly.

The kids each rolled a ball

I helped them put the lines in with a wooden Skewer.

We topped it off with a small stick for the pumpkin stem.

We baked for 3 hrs at 250.

Colored Popcorn Seeds

This is fun! What should we craft with these?

image

Here is what you need:

Popcorn Seeds
Food coloring
Rubbing alcohol
Ziplock baggies

Put popcorn seeds in a bag and added a few drops of food coloring to the bag. Then add about a tablespoon of the rubbing alcohol and the popcorn. Seal the bag and mix up tell all seed are covered and you have the color you want. I used cookie sheets with wax paper. Then put the popcorn on top to dry. We let the seeds dry outside for a few hours. This is a perfect craft because you can make a million more crafts with it 🙂

Someone suggested I pop it.
