I love this cute Paper Turkey Treat Box that my son made at school. All you need is some construction paper, scissors and a glue stick and you are able to create a fun treat box or turn it into a name card on the Thanksgiving table. It would be fun to add what you are thankful for on the turkey feathers!
Paper Turkey Treat Box:
- Construction Paper
Just make a box out of brown construction paper and add an orange handle. Then add a beak, eyes, feet and gobbler (ribbon). Finally add six colorful tail feathers and you are good to go! You can fill with candy corn or jelly beans and you have an adorable treat for the kids on their Kid’s Thanksgiving Table.
Perfect for when you are COOKING the Thanksgiving Feast and need something for the kids to do to keep them busy and out of harms way. Not only that but you will be fostering learning at the same time. One idea is to set up a craft and learning station in your garage or basement so the kids can stay entertained and out of the way while you are busy cooking. Don’t have a garage or basement, no worries, find any free space or tuck them into the corner of the kitchen if necessary. Put tons of supplies out on a table and be sure to cover the table with newspaper or a plastic table cloth. You may need to cover the floor too. Pick up plastic tablecloths at the dollar store and then let them express themselves. Let the kids create some amazing Thanksgiving themed crafts and work on these worksheets and coloring pages while you are working on the meal.
Here are some Thanksgiving Craft Ideas to keep the kids busy crafting while you are cooking. I would suggest assigning some older teens to watch over and assist the kids if possible.
