Unplug your kids......Thankful

This weeks theme was "Thankful" for the unplug your kids project. We went more towards a Thanksgiving theme for it. I was actually working on a christmas gift when Gabe gave me the idea for this. He really wanted me to trace his hand for him. When I did, I thought that little turkey suncatchers would be cute. I know that I have done suncatchers like this before. Some people are fairly new to reading the blog and may not have seen it before so I thought I would share the directions again.
First you want choose a design for your suncatcher. In this case I used my own drawing of the boys hands for the design.
When Gabe saw these he said "Oh what nice pigeons." That kid sometimes.

Then after you have choosen your design lay overhead sheets on it and outline the shape in puffy paint.

Then you take equal parts paint and white school glue and mix them together. Let your kids paint in the design.
These are still wet but when they dry it will still have color. Then results will be clearer. Now you have a very cute suncatcher. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
Make sure to check back for next weeks theme of Weather. Until then check out everyone else's projects over here.
