Play group: Fun and Easy At-Home Thanksgiving Crafts!

Did someone say Thanksgiving?! This week was a smaller group at Playgroup due to the Holiday Season, but we still had fun anyway! 

We made some fun turkey's out a few basic home supplies:

*Toilet Paper Roll
*Construction Paper
*Paper Plate (cut in half)
*Colorful feathers (if available)
Trace your child's hand on different colors and then cut them out...
start gluing on the hands and feathers on to the plate...
lastly glue your toilet paper roll and draw/glue eyes, beak and wattle (that's what it's called!) 
That's it, easy and fun for the kids!
Also great for their sensory motor development!

For snacks we had some cute turkeys and pilgrim hats!
I attempted to use candy corn for the beak on this one. =)

All you need for this snack is...
Reeses miniatures, oreos, candy corn and some frosting (this is orange-dyed buttercream). You also might want a plastic baggy or if you have tips for decorating with frosting you can use those too.
All you do is use the frosting as a glue and put together your yummy treats. For the pilgrim hats I chose to leave the wrapping on the Reese's to match the color better with the cookie. Explore and enjoy!
All these ideas are adapted from some sort of craft I found just searching on Google, the internet is a great tool! 
Until next time!
