Potato Turkeys!

Today the Tang Museum at Skidmore College hosted Family Saturday, and the craft was Potato Turkeys. Pipe-cleaner artist Ginger Ertz, art teacher Karen McEachon, and Skidmore students put together a craft-buffet of feathers, beads, pipe cleaners, and other embellishments that participating children and their families used to create their own unique Thanksgiving centerpieces.

Henry and Peter joined me and we had a great time. Here are a few photos of our art work!

Henry's Tae Kwan Do Black Belt Turkey

Pete's blue turkey (with a little help from Karen McEachon!)

My embellished turkey!

Pete took this photo of Henry and me.

I don't know what will be gracing your Thanksgiving table, but I doubt it can be as beautiful as Henry's and Peter's turkeys!
