The Sawdust Factory

We went to a place called The Sawdust Factory last week where you can make all kinds of fun things out of wood.  We don't have a ton of Thanksgiving decorations, so we decided to make a cute little Thanksgiving swag to hang up.
They traced Sophie and Avery's hands on wood and then cut them out to make them into little turkeys.  They also had little Pilgrims and an Indian that Sophie and I painted together.
I couldn't believe how well Sophie did at painting.  She was so careful and tried really hard to stay in the lines and everything.
Avery didn't get to play with paint this time, but she looked super cute in her painter's smock!
We had a great time working together and created a very cute decoration that the girls can look at every year and see how much their hands have changed.  I love doing crafts with the girls, especially when I don't have to clean up! :)
