Turkey Day Projects

We did a few projects this year both at a Thanksgiving Party we had and as part of our school day. Here are a few of the things we did.

M's Turkey hand print. I love displaying these little sentimental art pieces year after year!

S's turkey hand print (in brown) and then she added details to it.

B painted this pumpkin at our Thanksgiving Party. M painted a pumpkin on her tile too. When M wanted to add to her pumpkin, I accidently grabbed B's tile! Sooooo this is a collaboration of B and M's art work!

So what do you think?  Did you do any Turkey Day Projects with your kids this year? If so, let me know...I need some  good ideas to save for next year!

Co-op Performances and the Art Gallery

The last day of Co-op for this semester, several classes were able to demonstrate things they made or learned during the semester. S took a Cheer and Gymnastics class and they demonstrated a cheer they had learned. It was really  good to see how well they did!

E took a painting class and they displayed their art pieces in an Art Gallery for everyone to come by and take a look.

She did some great pieces, learned a lot, and really enjoyed her teacher! She is looking forward to taking another art class next semester!

Riding in the Parade 2011

One of the things that S gets to do for being the Grand Prize winner is to ride in the parade!

She did so good waving and smiling and interacting with the crowd. Scot got to ride in the car with her. He said she was awesome!

What everyone didn't realize was that she woke up with a fever and a sore throat! She was a trooper though!

Recipe Contest - Winners!

S and E both placed in the annual Recipe Contest at our local fair. S won first and E won 3rd place! I am so proud of both of them!

We got a huge surprise when S also won GRAND PRIZE this year! They take all the first place winners and choose a GP from them. How cool is it that this year they chose S!!!!

Pumpkin Decorating Contest

Every year the kids enter the Pumpkin Decorating contest at our local fair. This year, the 3 older kids all won FIRST place in each of their age categories!

E with her Angry Bird. This was her first year competing in the Jr High division!

B painted his pumpkin to look like a football.

S painted a farm scene all the way around the pumpkin.

M was so excited to finally be old enough to enter too! She won Honorable Mention in the K5 division for her pumpkin.
