Turkey Pumpkin? or Pumpkin Turkey?

CJ and I did a Thanksgiving "project". I have had these miniature pumpkins laying around since early October and finally decided to put them to some use. So we made turkeys out of them.

CJ had a good time. He finally got to use his kid scissors. Anything we would have done would have been ok with him as long as he could use those scissors.

On each of the "feathers" we (I) wrote "CJ is thankful for..." and then in crayon wrote something he told me his was thankful for. There are four feathers on our Turkey's because this year marks CJ's 4th Thanksgiving. It will also be the first Thanksgiving that we will actually be celebrating with family and on the actual day reserved.

Here are some pictures of our work.

What a cute turkey. I will pull a recipe to make Christmas ornaments and post it to my blog. We made the ornaments last year, but I also did imprints of Cameron's hands and feet and gave them to his grandparents. It is fun and very easy and he can use the cookie cutters to cut out he ornament shape that he wants.

Great job, Mom! I love your turkey!! My son & I once made an Indian headdress & vest out of paper grocery sacs. It was fun & I got to talk to him a bit about the first thanksgiving while we worked. He wore that thing around for days!
