Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids
Here are a few Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids ( courtesy dltk-holidays.com )
Making Fall Leaf Turkeys
This simple craft is made with natural materials (leaves and a pinecone.)
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!
