ThanksgivingWhen Thanksgiving arrives, there tends to be a flurry of action, chopping, mixing, baking, and more, for the adults. But what about the kids? Sure, some assistance from your little helpers is appreciated, but when the kitchen becomes full and a little too warm, you may be seeking alternate entertainment for your kids.

Rather than sending them to a screen for entertainment, how about a craft that will keep them busy and amused?

  • Glam Leaves-

Cut leaf shapes out of foam sheets with adhesive backs. Attach rhinestones and glitter to the sticky side (no glue needed). Hang with a ribbon.

  • Thankful Turkey Hands-

Trace hand on construction paper. Add turkey beak and googly eyes, and decorate with feathers. On the back of the decorated turkey list the things about grandma, grandpa, or other special guest that are special and for which your child is thankful.

  • Punched Turkey Placecard

The only things you need are a few punches (scallop and two circle sizes), any card stock you want to use, and some glue or glue dots. If you want to draw eyes or make a place card, markers can be used for that. To view the finished project, visit Stamp Monkeys.
