Our Thankful Turkey
I know. I know. My artistic abilities overwhelm you. Try to look past the sheer art value of this piece and instead further into the craft itself.
We create this turkey every year.....obviously, by hand.....out of construction paper....it's very easy to do. Each day, each kid adds a feather including what he/she is thankful for. By the time Thanksgiving arrives, we have a fully fluffed turkey with blessings galore.
I love this simple craft because it gets kids thinking about how much they have to be grateful for.....including the small things......and hopefully they'll take that into the Christmas season ahead.
