Turkey Art

First, I printed the simple turkey line drawing and the kids outlined it with a Sharpie. 
Then they colored them beautifully with oil pastels. Don't forget the horizon line.


Fully colored. Lovely.

Now take a black oil pastel and cover the whole thing with black. 
Really, Mom, are you sure? Yep.

Now you can scratch away using a toothpick, skewer, or popsicle stick. 
Try to follow the direction of the grass and the sky/wind and the feathers.

They loved the final product.

I did not love the little balls of black oil pastel all over the wood floors. 
My advice: take it outside to brush off all the scraped bits of black.


Peter wanted to do something a little different. I love this project. There are step-by-step instructions as to how to draw a turkey. 
I did it with Hannah and Will three years ago.
