Baby Gobble Gobble Thanksgiving Craft

While my life is currently reflecting changes in tradition, I find that there will always be one tradition that never changes. Crafting. It's more than just paper and glue, more than glitter and yarn...it's memories. I've had the privilege of having a very creative and crafty mother who gave us the love of creation. For as long as I can remember, we've always crafted and for as long as I can remember, she always created. At this moment, I'm recalling a crafting room...so many supplies to preoccupy the mind and feed creative intentions. I will forever be thankful for my mother loving us enough to create with us while encouraging our imaginations.

Here's an adorable baby turkey your kids will love crafting. If you don't feel like doing all the prep work, or shopping for all the supplies, I do sell the craft kit in my Teachers pay Teachers store: Uppity Owl. (It'll be our secret hehe.)
