Bountiful Thanksgiving Turkey Craft

 
This Thanksgiving Craft is more than just a creative and fun outlet for kids. Use this as a time to discuss the concept of thankfulness. Have each child explore the ideas of thankfulness in an age appropriate way and come up with several things he is thankful for. When the craft is completed, show the child how much bounty he has to be thankful for.

    5. For the feathers, cut out the oval shape from the pattern and trace 5 times onto the desired color(s) of craft foam. Then cut 5 smaller ovals to fit inside of the bigger ovals from the tag board. On each of these ovals write: "I am thankful for: _______________________."
    6. The child should write something he/she is thankful for on each feather.
    7. Glue the smaller feathers to fit inside of the larger feathers (as shown).

    9. For the hat, take an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of black paper and cut it lengthwise. Staple or tape the two ends together so you have a long strip. Then measure it around the child's head and stale/tape it so it should fit on his/her head.
    10. When the turkey is dry, staple the turkey to the black hat.
