Easy turkey craft for kids

I love Thanksgiving! What a great day. Full of family, food, friends, food, feeling thankful, and did I mention food? Right at the center of the table is the star of the show if you will. The turkey. So this year while your turkey gets roasted in the oven, here is a cute little turkey craft you can throw together with the kids. You probably have everything you need in your kitchen!

You will need:

small paper plate

cupcake liner

markers

tape or glue

Have your child glue or tape the cupcake liner to the back of the paper plate. If you are using glue, you may want to let it dry for a few minutes.

Add a face and legs to your turkey. Once you have drawn the face, give him some pretty feathers. I love letting the kids be creative with how they draw these. Whether they want to just color different colored feathers or patterns. Whatever! It is fun and gives them something to do while they wait for the yummy dinner.

 Turkey Bites ~ Fun DIY Thanksgiving Treats For Kids

My girls made these last year with their Granny, as a special treat for Thanksgiving. After all, not all kids get excited about pumpkin pie, but these silly little turkey’s sure made them smile.  They are easy to make and you can make them a few days before the party if you need to, which is nice for busy schedules.

To make these you will need:

Bag of pretzels (not the mini and not the large…just the standard size)

Bag of candy corn (if you have a hard time finding them, look for them in the bulk food at WinCo)

Wilton Eyes (found online or at most craft stores)

Bag of M&M’s

Bag of Hershey’s Kisses (unwrapped)

Lay the pretzels on a baking sheet, place one chocolate kiss on each pretzel. Put into the oven at 350 degrees for 3-4 minutes… just until they get shiny. They will not look like they are melted, but if you touch them they are soft. Take out of the oven and quickly begin to assemble your turkeys.  Start by putting three candy corn on the top to look like feathers. Next place two eyes in the middle and right below that  place an M&M on its side for a mouth.  Allow to fully cool (about an hour) before you move them. Store in an airtight container, enjoy!

Fall craft projects for kids, LEAF RUBBING perfect for school age children, girl scout or boy scout craft ideas that are both educational and low cost

Easy Fall Art Projects For Kids ~ Leaf Rubbing

Leaf Rubbing can be done any time of the year (that you can find leaves) but we always do it in the Fall. I think it is because we see the beautiful colors they turn, thanks for mother nature and want to recreate that in an art project.  This is a great project to make with school age children or adults. Perfect for church groups or even girls scouts or boy scouts as they learn about different trees or plants.

To make you own leaf rubbing all you need is white  paper, I normally use a sturdy copy paper. Coloring crayons with the wrappers taken off, and scotch tape. You will also need an assortment of leaves fresh picked, so the ridges or lines show up good.

Tape your paper on one edge to the surface you are going to work on. In the photo below I have it taped to my side walk. But taping it to a table works just fine too.  I found that taping the paper helps the paper NOT shift so much and makes for a prettier finished picture.  Lay the leaves you have collected under the paper, put the paper on top.  Start rubbing the top of the paper using the length of your crayon as the coloring surface. Use as many colors as you want, watch a beautiful  image appear.

Tissue paper pumpkins, great party favors

Pumpkins are one of the first things that come to mind when I think of fall. I love decorating with them and using them whenever I can. I have never been a huge Halloween fan. I don’t mind it, but having kids has made me enjoy it more because it is so fun for them. But, I am not a fan of the creepy side of the day. I like the cutesy, fun part. These are perfect if you are like me!Easy Halloween or Thanksgiving treats , perfect for school parties. Tissue paper Pumpkins, kids crafts made easy

All you will need is:

orange tissue paper (cut 1 sheet into 4 equal squares)

green washi tape

candy or surprise to put inside

All you have to do is take a couple of pieces of your candy and place them in the center, pulling the sides up into a little bag. Make sure that all of the edge is able to be gathered together so there isn’t any holes for your candy to fall out.

Once it is gathered give it a couple of twists to keep it from opening. Once you have twisted it shut, wrap the washi tape around the twist. You will have some paper hanging over the top. Simply trim that off with a pair of scissors to leave a clean edge.

These would be great for party favors for a fall party, a class party, for trick or treaters, or even for a Thanksgiving treat on each plate in a place setting. The kid’s table would really love it!
