Thanksgiving is always a wonderful time...food, friends, family, pumpkin, pecan, apple. ;)
That being said how a few thanksgiving craft ideas? Something fun to do with kids and a reminder to be grateful.
I made these Thankful turkeys with my class a few years ago:
Here is a quick how-to:
two different sized brown paper circles (didn't measure)
various sized different color paper strips
small red ribbon for wattle (I used a red fabric scrap)
sharpie (use crayons, magic marker - anything dark)
Tape (I used strong crafters tape, the kids used glue)
Then start making your turkeys:
|add the wattle before gluing/taping the head and body together|
|glue/tape the strips of paper like this|
|I would write what you are thankful for on the belly before attaching the "feathers"|
|This is how I attach the "feathers" to the back - just see what looks right to you|
Then you have a cool Thankful Turkey that can be put on the wall, fridge, or hung up some where from the loops on the "feathers."
Here are a few more activities I found on pinterest:

Remember to eat lots, take naps, and don't let the dog eat your pie. Now I'm off to make V and Co's pretty apple pie. Yum.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!
