The Village Pediatrics staff is thankful for our patients and their families!
So to celebrate you, we’ve rounded up a few fun craft ideas to try at home with your kids. Happy Thanksgiving!
1. Gourd Turkeys
Each of these turkeys is a one-of-a-kind! All you need are a selection of gourds, some bright colored fluffy feathers, a few scraps of felt and a pack of silly googly eyes. Oh – and an adult to operate the hot glue gun, of course!
2. Egg Carton Turkey Treat Box
Egg cartons aren’t just for Easter! Check out this two-for-one turkey craft. Candy dish? Check!
Place card? Check! Extra credit: finding out your daughter is grateful for … worms!
3. Leafy Placemats
How cool are these? Whether you choose single-use construction paper or a heftier
felt-and-Con-Tact-paper style, these placemats are sure to brighten up your holiday table.
4. Pinecone Bird Feeders
Why should humans be the only ones enjoying a big meal on Thanksgiving? That notion is for the birds! And, so is this super-simple bird feeder. Give your backyard buddies something to be thankful for, too!
5. Thanksgiving Day Parade Scavenger Hunt
Yes, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade will look a bit different this year, but the beloved event will still usher in the holiday season. To make it even more fun, create a scavenger hunt for your kids to enjoy while they watch the parade.
6. Pumpkin Pie Gratitude Spinner
Who’s ready for a slice of pie? Gratitude pie, that is. As the pie spins around, each “slice” reveals something your child is thankful for.
