I’m a huge fan of not having a million messy projects all over the place. But, my kids really enjoy making holiday crafts, so sometimes I’ll just give them construction paper, pencils, scissors, and glue sticks, then let them get creative!
This year they made a simple Thanksgiving Handprint Turkey Craft to hang on the wall.
- Construction paper (suggested colors: brown, white, black, yellow, red, orange, green)
- Glue or tape
- Pencil (for tracing hands and feet)
- Hole punch (optional – for punching black circles for the eyes)
