Here a turkey, there a turkey!

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and the kids will have a few days off school.  They can help decorate the house for your Thanksgiving dinner with these fun ideas.  Best of all, you probably have most of the supplies you'll need already at home.

Thumbprint Turkeys:

All you need is paint or ink in yellow, orange, red and brown.  Grab a marker an orange marker and some card stock to make adorable place cards for everyone at your dinner table.

Hand print/Footprint Turkeys:

You already know that I love projects that use hand prints.  Here is an adorable way to feather your turkey.

The Italian Turkey:

Okay, maybe he's not from Italy but the addition of coloured Rotini pasta makes this guy perfect for Thanksgiving.  By turning it into a book you can capture what everyone is thankful for each year.

Pine cone Turkey:

The kids will have fun collecting pine cones and then creating their lists of what they are thankful for.  Each feather they add helps them remember to count their blessings.

Hand print Turkey Cookies:

If you are a little more adventurous (and better at cookie decorating than I am) this idea would make a great place card at the table that would double for dessert.  Or, send them home with everyone at the end of the night.  You know they'll be thankful!
