Here’s what we used
Coloured card / coloured paper
How to make these adorable paper flower bouquets.
Take the coloured paper and cut out a square which you will use to make the bouquet. Turn the paper so that you have one corner pointing directly towards you. Take the corner from the left side and fold it in to the centre then repeat this process with the right corner to make a kite shape as above.
Cut out two equal teardrop shapes, take one of the teardrops and cut it directly in half from the point. Take the two halves and glue them onto the whole teardrop facing slightly outwards to make the tulip head. Repeat this process until you have the desired amount of flower heads.
Next cut out some thin rectangle stalks and some pointed leaves. Glue the flower heads onto the stalks and then add the leaves.
Stick the flowers down inside the bouquet.
Glue down the two sides of the bouquet and the cut out your heart shape and glue it on to the front of the bouquet. Finally finish your adorable paper flower bouquets with a cute personalised message.
Today my son and i have been chatting about thanksgiving. Living over in the UK we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving but we do have American friends who talk about it all the time, it just sounds like such a lovely tradition and a great way to spend time with family. Of course we have looked online together to research the history of thanksgiving to see how it all began and we’ve made these fun little fingerprint thanksgiving turkeys but we would love to hear how you celebrate, if you do! Are there any special family traditions that you have? We’d love to know!

How to make a paper plate turkey!
Start by taking the paper plate and cutting it half, keep one half and put the other one aside. Now it’s time for little one to cover the paper plate in beautiful multi colored fingerprints! once finished, place the paper plate to one side to dry.
Whilst the paper plate is drying take your brown card and cut out the shape of your turkey’s body – it looks almost like a number 8! Then cut out two little turkey legs and glue them in place at the bottom of the body.
Give the turkey two eyes, a big triangle beak and a red wattle.
Once your paper plate is dry, take your turkey and glue it down in the center of the plate. your plate turkey is finished! Isn’t he just the cutest? so simple and easy too! How do you celebrate thanksgiving? We would love to hear your traditions!
