Little Lady and I were busy this week making turkeys. She loves to help me decorate our home for the holidays but let’s be honest a 2-year-old can only be so helpful. By involving her in her own projects I can keep her away from the glass and other not so kid friendly items and she can proudly display her works of art around the house. Take a look at what we made and a roundup of other toddler thanksgiving crafts.
These hand and foot print crafts were a blast to make. I get to remember how little she was and she loved coloring and gluing on the feathers.
I’ve made these turkey cookies for years, but this was the first time little lady helped. You need a chocolate star, peanut butter cup (or cordial cherry) candy corn, and fudge striped cookie. Just glue it together with melted chocolate. These are lots of fun to make with kids on Thanksgiving then snack on after our meal.
Check out these other inspiring projects:
This fingerprint turkey from Cards by CG is a great idea. What toddler doesn’t love paint!
Clothespin Turkey from Formula Mom
Easy Turkey Craft using tissue paper and glue from Happy Home Fairy.
Spiral Noodle Turkey featured on Bless This Mess
Fruit Loop Turkey from Putti’s World. To make this toddler friendly I could draw a turkey and color the features then she could match the fruit loops to the correct colors.
Gratitude turkey from Little Family Fun. I would really like to write down what my daughter is thankful for and put it together like this. She could help with some of the letters and color the turkey body.
What crafts do you do with your kids this time of year?
Thanks for visiting!
