Did you ever make handprint turkeys in school? I loved making these when I was little. We homeschool and every year we make them. This year I found printable handprint turkeys from Family Fun Magazine online. I printed up a few pages for the boys and they traced their hand and colored them in. Then they glued colorful feathers onto the fingers. It was a fun new twist on an old favorite craft project.
I really think Thanksgiving gets overlooked. By the time Halloween is over, most people start focusing on Christmas. They only take a break in the middle to indulge and overeat with one big meal. I like to use the month of November not only to teach the kids the real meaning of Thanksgiving, but also to do fun crafts with them. We've already had Corn Week and Turkey Week. There are only 3 days next week, but I'm planning on doing something with Pilgrims. If you haven't done your Thanksgiving dinner shopping yet, I wish you luck. This is a busy weekend for that. And finally, I would like to leave you with one happy thought -- Gooble! Gooble!
