Have Your Turkey 3 Ways – Pencil Topper, Card, Coloring Page Deluxe

2011 November 19

Thanksgiving Turkey Crafts
For Kids

We’re getting ready to celebrate thanksgiving by making a card, pencil topper, and working on a multimedia coloring page.

These turkey crafts are easy and inexpensive. Grandma and Grandpa would love to get a turkey card from the kids.

A simple coloring page can become a work of art by using crayons, torn paper, and seed beads.  Tip – Cut the picture out and use in your family scrapbook.

A cute  little turkey topper on a glittery pencil is sure to give the little ones a smile. They can use their new pencil with the turkey on top to write a note in the card. How fun is that.
