Thanksgiving is a time for togetherness... it's an occasion to be spent in the warm and loving company of family, loved ones and friends enjoying turkey roast and pumpkin pies with them. Thanksgiving is also an opportunity to renew the ties that bind us with the ones we love... it is a time for remembering, cherishing and being thankful for all the good things you have been blessed with. So it's time to say 'Happy Thanksgiving'

Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids

Here are a few Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids ( courtesy )

Making Fall Leaf Turkeys

This simple craft is made with natural materials (leaves and a pinecone.)

Materials Needed:
Fall leaves
eyes (wiggly or paper)

Instructions:Go outside and collect autumn leaves and a pinecone (this is LOADS of fun, especially if it requires a trip to a park!)
OPTIONAL: You can press the leaves for a few days before making the craft. This will help keep them from getting crunchy. We didn't do this for ours (we've had it about 2 weeks now and it still looks fine)
Glue the leaves onto a piece of paper in a fan shape. Younger kids won't get a nice fan, but they'll still have lots of fun gluing!
Glue the pinecone onto the bottom of the fan (use lots of glue)
Make eyes from a scrap piece of paper and markers or use wiggly eyes. Glue them to the pinecone.
Make an orange beak and a red wobbler from felt, construction paper or white paper and markers. Glue them onto the pinecone.
Let dry and hang up!
