I thought I would share with you a cute idea to make that turkey on your bulletin board come to life with old ties! Who knew that this would be such a cute idea using old ties to brighten up a turkeys feathers? I saw this at our church and had to take a picture. It was adorable and got me thinking how I could use this in my own hallway. I thought this would make an adorable centerpiece to a bulletin board and have the kids surround our fine "tied" turkey with things they are thankful for. I thought I could either ask for donations from the kids to bring in old ties from their house because we all know there is a tie or two that their dads could part with...lol. :) Or if you chose not to do that you could always visit your local thrift store and pick up some there for a bargain. I am including a handout that I plan on having my kids do with this bulletin board or even place on your classroom door.
I would have them add their name and color the turkey's body. On the feathers they could write some things they are thankful for. For my kinders, I would have them write one thing on the turkey's body and for older students they could add things to the feathers. I would love to hear from you.
