    Spelling Turkeys
    By ZacMan's Mom

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Several colors of construction paper
    one large potato for each child

    Have the children cut out feather shapes (4-5" tall) from the construction paper. They should cut as many feathers as they have spelling words that week. Have them write one spelling word on each feather. Tape a toothpick to the back of each feather, with at least 1/2 of the tootpick hanging off the bottom of the feather. Cut a 'figure 8' sort of shape from brown paper, proportionate to the potato (about 3-4" tall). This will be the turkey's head and neck. Draw eyes, a beak and wattle. Tape a toothpick to this piece the same way as the feathers. Then assemble the 'turkey', sticking the head into one end and the feathers in the back end. Cute, inexpensive, and a darling 'centerpiece' for them to take home!
