Handprint and footprint turkeys are the best decorations for Thanksgiving.

We also like making paper mache ornaments that we paint and put small candy canes & gum in.  Then we hang them on the tree.

My kids loved it. We made snowflakes from tongue blades and Christmas trees from pipe cleaners, and paper stockings.
