Here are some great ideas on how to get the kiddos involved during the Turkey Day festivities.  Let them craft while you cook or run around like a turkey with it's head cut off, is there a pun in there ?  These crafts are great for all ages, not only of they get the creative juices flowing but they are also easily made with common items in your recycling bin!

What you will need to get started:

  • empty toilet rolls
  • construction paper
  • scissors
  • markers, crayons, pencils, paint.. really the sky is the limit on this one.....
  • glue
  • staples
  • found objects (twigs, flowers, buttons, etc.)
  • lots of laughs and smiles :)
Once you have gathered all the items needed and desired set up a space for the kids to work, I like to keep them close enough but still far away so they aren't in the way of cooking traffic and potential hot pots, pans, plates...  Try to let the big kids take the lead and let them all be a creative as they please.
