Gobble Up Some Thanksgiving Crafts

There’s one day left till Thanksgiving. You’ve got this all you stay at home, work from home, took time off this week, homeschooling parents! And just in case you don’t got this….here’s some Thanksgiving themed craft project ideas to get you through!

TP Tube and Paper Plate Turkey: This is the only project I can take credit for…although I think I stole the idea from kindergarten or daycare originally. Pretty strait forward, cut a white paper plate in half and have your kids color turkey feathers on it any way they like. Then glue the plate to a toilet paper tube. Add the face and have a gobbling good time.

Pinecone Turkey/Construction Paper Pumpkin Pie I bow to this lady’s ultimate craftiness! If you have toddlers to second graders, you have to check out her site! These are only a few of the brilliant craft ideas she has come up with. She’s also got instructions for a dot painted Indian corn project, a dot painted turkey, gratefulness rocks, and a bottle cap turkey puppet.

Nutter Butter Turkey Cookies Check out this site for instructions to make these super simple Nutter Butter cookies as a last-minute contribution to Thanksgiving dessert. I love that they are no bake so the kids can help make them and they are relatively mess free!
