Last week, my children made the sweetest little thankful turkeys in the history of turkey thankfulness! I'm sure I'll say the same thing next year, as I'm sure I said the same thing last year. :) That's just how moms are...every sweet little project is always the cutest!
one large and one small circle in coordinating papers
five (or more) popsicle sticks
markers, crayons, or colored pencils
yarn or string
Have your child color the popsicle sticks in fall type colors. We did orange, red, brown, and yellow. Then glue the small circle to the large circle so it looks like a head resting on a chunky turkey body. Draw eyes, a beak, and a wattle onto the turkey face.
If your child is able, have them write something they are thankful for on each popsicle stick. If your child is not of writing age, have them dictate their thankful things to you as you write them on the stick. Then, glue the sticks onto the back of the turkey making sure the writing is facing out so it can be easily read. Attach a piece of yarn to the back and hang as a Thanksgiving decoration!
