  • I thought of making a rice crispy body for a turkey and making suckers in different colors for the tail. Not sure how well it will work but, it's just an idea.

  • Cut contruction paper in to a strip that fits around your kiddo's head and let them decorate it with feathers like a Native American headdress. Make a turkey by decorating a paper plate with feathers or markers, then glue a turkey neck, head and legs cut out of paper on to it. Color fruits, cut them out and glue them on to a cornocopia.

  • how about a fall wreath? Or "stained glass" pictures. I think you use wax paper and put leaves in between and broken up crayons and iron (with a towel over it). I'm going to do this with my 3.5 yr old

  • My son learned the word "cornucopia" in kindergarten this week. Maybe you can make one and fill it with things that you're thankful for.

  • Make a thankful tree. Use construction paper to decorate the outside of a vase, place marbles or floral foam in the bottom of the vase. Then put tree twigs in the vase to make a tree. Then cut construction paper leaves & write something you are thankful for each day on a leaf & hang the leaf on the tree w/ a piece of string.
