Turkey Time

(A little blast from Thanksgiving past)
This week is all about our wattled friends and Thanksgiving favorites- turkeys!

Hand and Footprint Turkey- we'll be painting, tracing, cutting, the works to make this guy

Coffee Filter Turkey- we'll use the same technique as previous crafts (here and here) to make the plumage for a feathered friend

Pinecone Turkey- grandma and grandpa gave us a big bag full of pinecones from their yard so we'll transform a few into turkeys

Turkey Feed- aka granola!

Pin the Wattle on the Turkey- I can't wait to see how well our aim will be when we are blindfolded

Turkey Hide 'n Seek- how many turkeys will we find hiding around the house?

Turkey Feather Counting Game- this simple game will allow us to practice counting while adding some colorful feathers to the little gobblers

10 Fat Turkeys Gracias The Thanksgiving Turkey (Scholastic Bookshelf: Holiday) Turkey Trouble Hide-and-Seek Turkeys  A Turkey for Thanksgiving A Plump and Perky Turkey Run, Turkey, Run! The Best Thanksgiving Ever! 


  1. My daughter can't get over the idea that we are going to eat a turkey. She seems so confused that the animal we read about in all the books is going to be on her plate!
    Thanks for always giving me such great ideas.
    Passed along a blog award to you!

  2. Eva is the same way! She keeps asking me if our turkey is scared.

  3. Thanks for the great ideas! I love to get ideas to use with my kids!
