Thanksgiving Craft: Pinecone Turkey

This is the perfect craft for those rainy days when your kids are bored and need something to do.  It has been rainy here for a few days now and my kids are stir crazy because they can’t play outside.  They have been begging for “something special” to do.  This pinecone turkey is so great because I already have all the supplies I need to make it.  Yay for not having to make an extra trip to the store in the rain!  Even better, I can use the finished product as placecards for Thanksgiving dinner.  I love when I can kill two birds with one stone.  Thanks to Amazing Moms for the great idea.

Here is what you need to make these Pinecone Turkeys:

  • yellow card stock or construction paper
  • brown card stock or construction paper
  • glue
  • scissors
  • wiggly eyes

Thanksgiving Craft: Thanksgiving Place Mats

Last week, I featured the super cute pinecone turkeys that can double as placecards for your Thanksgivng dinner table.  I thought I would continue the theme this week with Thanksgiving placemats.  My kids are so excited that they are actually doing something to contribute to the big day.  I am just excited to have something to keep them busy on yet another rainy day.  Thanks to Crafts for All Seasons for the idea!

Here is what you need to make these Thanksgiving Placemats:

  • At least two sheets of 12 x 18 inch Foamie sheets.  As pictured above, you will need three sheets, one brown, yellow, and orange. You can use as many colors as you wish, though.
  • A ruler
  • A pen
  • A craft knife or Exacto blade
  • Scissors
  • Glue
