We’re having some issues lately with the boys not respecting what they own and what other people own. I figured November is the perfect time to talk about being thankful for what you have and respecting it! Originally I was going to have Baloo make a Thankfulness book but the idea of the turkey crept in and I couldn’t resist!
I tried to let Baloo come up with a name but he wanted Winkly-Tinkly-Linky or something close to that. So I chose Gabe. He’s a goofy turkey and needed a goofy turkey name!! Now we’re working on giving Gabe the Turkey a very large and very colorful set of feathers!
To make your own Gabe you’ll need 2 brown circles (one large, one small), 2 small white circles, and 2 smaller black circles, an orange triangle, and a red squiggly shape.
Glue them together and cut out a whole bunch of feathers!
We’re trying to add at least one feather a day. I can’t wait to see Gabe taking over our wall!
What ways do you promote respect and thankfulness with your kids?
