Thankful Turkeys!

Thanksgiving is next week! Are you ready!? What a great holiday to think of what we are thankful for! It is also a great time to teach your kids about gratitude and spend time with family.

One tradition I love on this holiday is a making a Thankful Turkey. There are many versions of this idea you could do. I just draw and cut out a big turkey on some construction paper. Then cut out feathers in lots of different colored paper. Everybody can write (parents can write for the kids) the things they are thankful for on the feathers and stick them on the turkey! Easy, cute, and fun!

The word "thankful" may be a little hard for your toddlers to understand. You can ask them what they say thank you for, or what makes them happy. It especially fun to see what is important in your kids' lives.

Do you make  What are your Thanksgiving holiday traditions?
