Gobble Gobble, Kindergarten Style

Today, I visited my daughter's kindergarten class to help with a craft. This is what we created. The turkey body is a little triangle box. I had the kids trace their hands and then cut it out. Next, they colored the hands. We put them on the back of the turkey to appear as feathers. They all did a great job, even if a few fingers got cut off (the paper ones, haha).

I brought a treat to insert inside the box, but on the way to the school I had another idea. I had the kids to write down some things they are thankful for - they had a lot of good ideas, "beautiful earth, God, Mom and Dad, Grandparents..." We put the things they are thankful for in their turkey box.

I challenge you to take a few moments and think about what you are thankful for. Write them down and put them around your scrap area as a reminder of this season.
