Here’s a tradition that gets fuller and fuller: our yearly turkey craft to celebrate Thanksgiving. The number of hands have expanded over the years, but each one have wonderful things to be thankful for:
This craft isn’t too difficult to pull together, and it involves all the children. One of the older ones draws out the larger turkey. All the children trace their hands on a separate, colored piece of paper. After cutting out their hand, they write things that they are thankful for. Then, with a little glue, the turkey fills out its feathers with the family’s thankful hands.
Funny. The original craft is quite popular in schools and such. But only 1 hand is used per turkey. See here. Ours looks more like a peacock!
We’ll be posting some other Thanksgiving ideas and traditions through the week. Do you have some cool traditions or projects? Comment below.
