Thanksgiving crafts for the kiddies

Hey all! The holidays are upon us and in full swing now. The fun rush of Halloween is over, and we are moving on to Thanksgiving.  Its also that time of year when it seems like the kids are never in school. This week alone, mine have off 3 days out of this week.
So when the boredom sets in, why not have them do some of these cute crafts, that can be displayed for Thanksgiving. Or a few of these can be done for Thanksgiving dinner. A simple way to keep them busy and decorate your home as well. 
---- ------ -----

Have the kids make thumbprint turkeys, on index cards. Add a little saying and your guest name, and you have place cards.


 
Paper plates, constructions paper, and toilet paper rolls can go a long way.


A giving tree type craft, made from your child's hand prints. 


Thankful wreath for your entryway. most crafts stores have these foam shapes already cut out. Just have them write what they are thankful for on each leaf, and glue together in a circle.








Kids love this one because they can get messy. Simple foot print for the body and hand prints for the feathers.




 This is a good one for the younger kids. Have them collect leaves while on a fall walk to create this cute nature turkey.
