Turkey Placemats for Thanksgiving

posted in: make it, special events | 0

When we decided at Threaded Together to each do a piece of the Thanksgiving table, I was assigned placemats.  I automatically thought about having the kids do turkey handprints or something similar on construction paper.  What we decided to do was cut out turkey feathers and a turkey body.  I let the kids put together each turkey and then we glued them to the whole sheet of construction paper.  Laminate them and you have fun placemats for Thanksgiving!

A few days ago as I was reading some craft blogs, I saw a suggestion where you should let the kids make the placemats on Thanksgiving day.  I wish I could remember the site!  What a great way for the kids to stay entertained and out of your hair while you get Thanksgiving dinner together!
