We will use this as our place mat for our feast. The turkey is clip art I enlarged. I painted the kids hands different colors to make the turkey tail. In the upper right corner is their picture with their hands folded in prayer. Beside the picture is a little tag I made that says Happy Thanksgiving with the year. On the bottom right is a prayer:
Thank you for giving me
food, clothes, and a place
to live. Thank you for my
family and relatives.
Please help me be more
thankful on other days, too.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
TOILET PAPER TUBE TURKEY
Start by tracing and cutting out each child's hand print. Children paint a TP tube in fall colors. When dry add googly eyes and a red triangle for waddle. Glue the hand print to the back of the TP tube. We added pom poms to the fingers and two clothes pins for legs.
DANCING CORN MAN
Accordion folded arms and legs make an adorable candy corn man.
We used grocery store flyers and cut our favorite foods and then glued them on a paper plate.
MULTI-COLORED FORK TURKEY
Materials: paper plates, crayons, turkey head, scotch tape, and plastic forks.
I divided each paper plate into eight sections and then let the children color each section a different color. They then colored the turkey and glued it to the center of the paper plate. Scotch tape the plastic forks to the back of the plate to look like legs.
NATIVE AMERICAN HEADRESS
We made Native American headdresses. We used bingo daubers and stamps to make our ABCD pattern
NATIVE AMERICAN NECKLACE
We used died pasta and patterned a necklace.
