Are you ever creating something that you can tell is going to turn out even better than what you pictured in your head? Have you had that happen while working on a super special gift?
This just happened to me this past week! My sister-in-law was in Kenya a couple weeks ago with The Kilgoris Project. I knew I wanted to make her something for when she came home and decided to do a map of Africa.
Her room is filled with minty greens and soft grays so I opened my embroidery floss boxes and started pulling out colors. I ended up with 10 different colors to work with which ended up being the perfect amount. With that many I didn’t have any of the same colors next to each other.
I decided to make a little turkey project with my guy today and I wanted something easy and made with things we already had. I kept thinking of those crushed egg shell pictures and looked outside at all of the crunchy brown leaves and my little brain light bulb went off.
What You Need:
a piece of paper (cardstock worked for us)
a small bag of crunchy leaves
1. Draw an outline of a turkey, we ended up doing a silhouette but you could also do one with the feathers out around him.
2. Crush up your crunchy leaves inside your bag. Just close up your bag and let your kid have fun smushing up something they are allowed to smush.

My first Phillies baseball game was shared with my grandfather. We watched them practice from the restaurant overlooking the field as their red uniforms pitched and swung and batted. Then the excitement as we entered the stadium to find our seats overlooking the bright green of the field in the humid summer air of Philadelphia.
