Sticky tube turkeys

You can add just about anything light in weight to a sticky tube but since we are still on our turkey tangent – we made sticky tube turkeys in our classroom this week….

To make a sticky tube, gather up empty paper towel or toilet paper tubes and wrap them with contact paper – sticky side facing out.  We stapled our contact paper to the tubes and had them ready to go before the kids arrived.  We just needed one quick activity to complete our day and this was it!…

To make a sticky tube turkey, the children found feathers and googly eyes on the table and simply stuck them on the tubes…

If they didn’t like where an eyeball or feather was placed, they could easily take it off the tube and stick it back on again in a new place…

We didn’t set out beaks or feet but you certainly could add more items for the children to decorate their tubes than we did.  Our students were happy just adding feathers and googly eyes and we had many other things going on that day so we kept it very simple…

Ok – so maybe they look more like owls or birds or fuzzy monsters but in any case, a sticky tube has lots of possibilities!

Oh – and lighter weight items like tissue paper, fluffy feathers, construction paper scraps, and small googly eyes work best – heavier items tend to fall off the sticky tube 🙂

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
