Let's Talk Turkey

Thanksgiving is almost here. Family and friends are coming to our house this year to celebrate and give thanks. If the weather is warm enough we will carry the tables outside and eat while enjoying the sunshine and the beautiful fall colors in the surrounding woods. If it’s too chilly we will eat indoors and after no one can eat another bite whom ever is feeling adventurous will grab bags and go for a walk in the woods gathering pine cones, evergreen boughs and whatever else we fancy for decorating for Christmas.
To keep the little ones occupied during dinner I thought they might like to decorate some bags to put the things we find into. I’m going to set these at their place setting along with a paper grocery bag and  some stickers.

I used pop dots for the turkey on the right and glued down the turkey on the right. 
Which do you prefer? Can you tell a difference?

I used Cricut's Sesame Street Seasons to make the box and Create a Critter for the turkey.
I only had 4 colors to put in the box and the original size holds 8. I wanted to keep the height but make it narrower for fewer colors. Using my Gypsy I set the height of the box to 4.35 and unchecked the ratio button, that’s the  little chain symbol between the Width and Height, I made the box width 4.77 without changing the height. I made the turkeys at a height of 1.82  I think the little ones are going to like these.
I'm going to share these over at FCCB's Pilgrims Progress Challenge and at Little Scrap Pieces for their Fun Friday. This week it's Animals. I also joined the fun over at Tatertots and Jello Weekend Wrap-Up.
