slides: Family Matters: Crafts for Thanksgiving

Friday, November 16, 2012

 

Thanksgiving is coming up quicker than ever this year, but there's still time this weekend and next week to do some fun, seasonal crafts with the kidos. Here are some of my favorites, created by some fantastic bloggers.

Pine Cone Turkey

These hilarious little things are fun, easy, and a delight to make. Park them in windowsills, on mantels, and at the kids' table on Thanksgiving.

How to: Get directions from Such Things, here.

Leaf Garland

This one is my favorite. Have everyone write something they are thankful for on a leaf. Hang in a doorway, window or from a chandelier.

With the magic of Sculpey, this is a super-easy natural craft for pretty much every age. Perfect for a post-Thanksgiving meal stroll in the woods.
