  • I'm having problems coming up with anything to do also. All I can think of is the normal, turkey handprints, making pictures from leafs, cupcakes in oranges and browns.... I'm interested to see what you end up with.

  • Last year my son made "place mats" for the table.. construction paper, fall type colors.. turkeys, leaves and lots of glue -- then we got them laminated. :)

  • Pine cone turkeys.....Pine cone layed on it's side.....use feathers or construction paper to make the tail...glue squiggle eyes and paint the tip orange or yellow for a beak and glue the red thing underneath.

    Wreath....glue pine cones together in a circle...decorate with acorns and leaves....to preserve spray with clear shilack or spraypaint all one color (like white, gold, silver)...or just leave in natural and let the kids paint with glue and add glitter

  • I have a few ideas first to make an indian hat get cut out a band of duct tape sticky side up have the child put feathers on it then cut out another band of duct tape sticky side down onto the first strip of duct tape and presto an indian hat. this one is called Turkey time get a work glove markers gule on buttons for eyes and felt pieces for wings and beaks and have your child make a turkey puppet by putting eye and beak on the thumb of the glove and glue the wings to the hand and have child decorate. For the kids table get some paper table cloth and have them glue turkey feathers on the border of the table clots and use markers to decorate

  • Personal Place Cards. using markers and crayons as well as glue, buttons, and felt pieces let kids create custom place cards one for each guest. and for kids to create there own custom place mats go to BHG.com/placemats they're available as PDF files and are roughly 8 1/2 X 11" and are the perfect size for most computer printers
