Turkey of Gratitude

Build in a lesson of how to give thanks this Thanksgiving. This kids Thanksgiving craft idea is easy to make and good for all ages. Ask each child to write what she’s thankful for on a paper feather, then stick it into this cute turkey centerpiece. If you make this turkey a week or two in advance, you can have your, children add a feather each day until Thanksgiving arrives. You can also let the rest of your Thanksgiving dinner guests add to the centerpiece: these leaves work well as dining place cards, so simply each person’s name on one side, then pass around pens and let them fill in their message of gratitude and add it to the turkey.

Glo Turkeys
