Holidays are a perfect time to engage kids with fun crafts. These little turkeys have become a yearly tradition for my daycare children, and they just love making them and munching on the supplies :o) You’ll need: 1 apple, mini-marshmallows, craisins, candy corn, some toothpicks, and your rendition of a turkey profile (cut out of a paper plate or any sturdy paper). Directions: have the kids skewer the marshmallows and craisins onto a toothpick, and color the turkey profile. Top each toothpick with a candy corn and insert along the top ridge of the apple for the feathers. Slice a thin cut into the front of the apple, and slip the turkey into the slot. That’s it!
We also made turkey placemats. I traced the child’s hand, cut out the handprint, and glued it onto a sheet of construction paper. We added a few details and I used clear Contact paper to laminate it for Thanksgiving dinner!
I used my new Cricut for the names. What a great little machine!! So many fonts, images and endless possibilities. The cartridges are pricey, though. This is one obsession that could spell t-r-o-u-b-l-e. Help!
Happy Thanksgiving wishes to all!
