Thanksgiving Turkey Craft for Preschool

I get to host the Thanksgiving party for my daughters preschool and I’m having so much fun planning it! I put together these easy Paper Bag Turkey’s for the kids to make. I’m going to have them draw something they are thankful for (since they can’t spell quite yet) on each feather. 

There are lots of cute Thanksgiving turkey crafts floating around out there but some weren’t quite at a preschool level like the ones I featured in this Round up of Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids. I came up with this one because I know the kids will be able to do it. Thanksgiving Turkey Craft -

Halloween Gingerbread Houses -


Each Christmas we decorate a traditional gingerbread house, for Valentines Day we turn it into a Love Shack, and this year we are making a Halloween Haunted House! When I saw the Halloween themed PEEPS® Brand Marshmallows at Target they practically begged me to use them on a Halloween Gingerbread house. As you know, we host a family Halloween party each year and each family brings a craft, game or activity. Well, these are going to be our craft this year!
