Thanksgiving Crafts

Thanksgiving will soon be here, in Canada it is 1 week away.

Do any of you have any great craft ideas for your daycare or preschool that you could share?

Thanks
Hugs
Debbie

This turkey craft is a favorite of mine. The poem says

This isn't just a turkey
As anyone can see
I made it with my hand
Which is a part of me
It comes with lots of love
Especially to say
I hope you have a very
Happy thanksgiving day!!!


Then use the childs handprint as the body of the turkey. I have used paint or like this one cut outs of brown paper.

Hugs
Debbie

This craft is made from a paper plate. I use this to try and get the kids to think about what they are thankful for in thier lives.

Thanks, Debbie!

If you don't mind, I'd like to print all these and show them to my son's daycare provider. She'd love 'em!

My DD made a turkey out of a pinecone and colored paper.
They cut the colored paper into feather shapes and on each feather they wrote things that they were thankful for. Then glued the feathers onto the open pinecone on one side. They finished it off by gluing a bent pipecleaner, with a red piece paper glued to it, to the small end of the pinecone.

They also made a tree out of construction paper then everone made different colored leaves from their handprint. They then wrote things they were thankful for and pasted the leaves on the tree.

(sorry no pictures)

The pinecone turkey sounds cute, too. We have lots of pinecones in the yard, so we can give that a try.

Have you guys thought of submitting these ideas to the Family Corner Family FunBook? I think this is the kind of stuff they are looking for.
