Thankful Turkey Craft

Ages 2 yrs+, adult supervision and assistance needed

There are a variety of turkey crafts for November and here is a favorite of ours as it gives us a chance to show how we are grateful.  Toddlers will enjoy coloring the body and feathers.  Preschoolers can try to draw pictures or write words to show how they are thankful.  Encourage older children to think of meaningful things and write messages on the feathers.  Keep your turkey on display for the month or send it to a friend or relative.

Materials Needed: 
Turkey body, construction paper, scissors, glue or tape, crayons or markers
