homemade thanksgiving cards

Thanksgiving is just round the corner and tomorrow is The girl’s last day of school before the Thanksgiving holidays, so The girl and I had to made these simple cards today for her teachers and friends. Ya, last minute work. πŸ˜›

The craft idea is from DLTK’s site. Originally it recommends using finger paints, but we used the oval shape cutouts in the shades of the Fall instead. Of course I know it will make a more personalized card if we used finger printing, but because Niklas is down with a cold and was running a low grade fever, I know I didn’t have much patience and time to supervise and clean up the mess that The girl would create while making the cards. Oh well… Anyway, I’m really happy with how the cards turn out. The turkeys were really cute. The girl had so much fun making the card all by herself with very little help from me. πŸ™‚
