I saw this cute Mayflower craft over at Ramblings of a Crazy Woman. So after we read a book about Thanksgiving and talked about what the Mayflower was we made this project.
You’ll need: construction paper, craft sticks, glue and a brown crayon.
Color the boat.
Glue on the water.
Add the boat and the sails.
The finished Mayflower.
We made some really easy Indian Corn.
You’ll need: Indian corn shape cut from paper bag, glue, ribbon, construction paper cut into squares.
Glue the colored squares onto the Indian corn.
Once they are dry, tie a ribbon around the Indian corn and display.
Here is another cute turkey idea I found over at Ramblings of a Crazy Woman.
Here’s what you’ll need: construction paper, glue, brown paint, google eyes, paper plate, paper bowl for paint and something to paint with.
Paint the paper plate brown.
While your child is busy painting, cut out some feathers, feet and pieces for the face.
Glue on the feathers.
Add the turkeys face.

It’s time for all the of the fun Thanksgiving and turkey projects to start! We made our first turkey project yesterday, one that I found over at Ramblings of a Crazy Woman.
You’ll need: paper bag, google eyes, construction paper, glue, something to tie around the bag and newspaper.
Stuff half of the bag with crumpled up newspaper.
Twist the middle of the bag and tie something it around to hold it in place (I used brown ribbon). Then stuff the top of the bag with more crumpled up newspaper. Tape the top of the bag shut.
Add a face to your turkey.
Add some feathers.
