Handmade Thanksgiving Crafts Part II

easy craft projects
Thanksgiving dinners take 18 hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take 12 minutes. This is not coincidence. ~Erma Bombeck

If you ask my kids, they will tell you that there were two Thanksgiving craft projects that we never missed.  (My grand kids will have to endure at least one!)

  1. The hand print paper plate Turkey – kept them busy for at least an hour.
  2. “Oh You Turkey” coloring contest – this Thanksgiving tradition involves cutting out the black-and-white drawing of a turkey from the Variety section of the Star & Tribune newspaper.

If your local newspaper doesn’t have a Turkey coloring contest…here’s a template for a Harvest Turkey to print and color …prizes not included.

I guess I was a little  surprised that Martha didn’t make the last handmade craft post … but she does have some really cool Thanksgiving Clip Art and Templates.  Some of these printable Thanksgiving decorations will keep the kids busy, for a least a few minutes.

You have to admit that getting ready for Thanksgiving wouldn’t be the same without scouring Better Homes & Gardens for their Easy Thanksgiving Crafts and Treats and Easy Centerpieces for Thanksgiving.
Have Fun!
