Here are more crafts for kids to make for Thanksgiving table and a fun game we like called turkey bowling. I know some adults do play with real turkeys; but, not here.
Materials: "Double Arches" Large Punch Around the Page set, Cardstock in assorted fall colors, Small pinecones, and White glueDirections
1. To create one feather, punch paper with "Double Arches" corner punch. Cut punched shape from paper, tapering at bottom to make an ice cream cone shape. Repeat to make five feathers in assorted colors.
2. Turn pinecone onto its side (the bottom will be the back; the top will be the face). Dab a small amount of glue on bottom of punched feathers. Insert feathers between the scales on the back of the pinecone in a fan arrangement.
3. To form beak, cut a small triangle from paper and crease; glue to front of pinecone.
Tip: Use the "Double Arches" Large Punch around the Page set to create coordinating paper place mats.
Materials: pinecones, googly eyes, feathers, hot glue, orange felt, and scissors
Directions: Hot glue a few feather to the bottom of a
pinecone. Then, add googly eyes to the front for a face and an orange triangle
of felt for the beak.
Materials: Artificial Flowers, Glue Googly eyes, Colored
Card Stock, Paper Circles, Letter Stickers, and vase or container.
Directions: Using an
artificial sunflower or gerbera daisy, trim the petals from one side of the
flower as shown. Make the turkey's face by gluing two googly eyes and a colored
card-stock beak and wattle onto a large brown button or paper circle. Then glue
the face to the flower center. Spell out "Give Thanks" using letter
stickers on the side of a vase or container and arrange the flowers inside.
For adorable napkin rings your kids
can craft, make these mini pilgrims and Indians.
Materials: cardstock in white, brown, black, and yellow, black and red marker, glue
Directions: Use cardstock and markers to decorate little pilgrims and Indians on a small rectangle of cardstock about 4 inches tall. Then, wrap the cardstock around your napkin to make a tube and glue the ends. At the end, embellish with a pilgrim hat or feather.
