While there are so many turkey crafts out there, I can't seem to pass up this good old-fashioned one. A simple turkey body (the kids painted half of a paper plate) and paper feathers labeled with things that the kids are thankful for.
Meredith easily told me 4 things she was thankful for: God, Daddy, Mommy, and Auntie Heidi. After that, she just kept saying "God, Daddy, Mommy, Auntie Heidi" over and over again. It took a while to get some other ideas from her. Eventually, she added Adam (a little boy who we cared for last weekend), Mrs. Sue (a neighbor), her Doll, Caleb, Shane, and Tacos. =)
Turkey of Thanks:
Caleb had no problem rattling off a list of things he is thankful for. The first thing he said was God. Then, it was Mommy, Daddy, Meredith, Shane, Family, Friends, Toys, and Blankie. And, he wrote all of the words by himself (I helped with the spelling)!
