Highlight of the Month

Thanksgiving is Here

Try making some of these Thanksgiving craft ideas:

Everybody loves to make a turkey to celebrate.  We give you two different, simple turkey decorations to make your house festive.

tissue paper plate turkeyTurkey number one is a paper plate, some construction paper and some tissue paper.  Cut a paper plate in half.  Using some brown paper, cut a circle for your turkey's body.  Either draw some eyes, cut some eyes or attach some googly eyes to your turkey. Add an orange triangle beak, some feet and a red wattle.  Cut some tissue squares and glue them to your plate.  Glue your turkey on top for a quick and easy Thanksgiving craft.

paper bag turkeyTurkey number two is even easier.  Take a brown lunch bag. Cut some construction paper feathers and glue them to the back of the bag.  Cut out some construction paper eyes, a beak and wattle and glue them to the front of the bag.  Instant turkey decoration done.



paper pumpkin with thankful sayingsIf you don't want a turkey decoration, how about a pumpkin?  Cut strips of orange the paper.  On the outside of the strip, write what you are thankful for.  Close the ends of the strips and make a circle.  Repeat with each strip, spreading the strips around to form a pumpkin shape, and circle all the strips together at the top.  Cut some green leaves and glue or staple them to the top.  They can be all different sizes to decorate a table, a counter, or even a windowsill.
