Thankful Turkeys | Thanksgiving Craft for Families

We have so much to be thankful for this year and thought with Thanksgiving coming up, teaching B gratitude and appreciation would be an important lesson.  I could not help but tear up as we talked and shared our ideas about what each of us were thankful for, especially when B said the baby in my belly.  I hope you enjoy making these Thankful Turkeys with your family!

Thankful Turkeys


Construction paper
Googly eyes and anything else you would like to add to your turkeys


  1. Have each family member trace their hand on a sheet of construction paper and cut it out.
  2. On each finger, write what you are thankful for.  Help little ones do this part.
  3. Work together to make your family of thankful turkeys.  Create beaks, gobblers, feathers, eyes, and whatever else you would like to add to your turkeys.
  4. Glue your turkeys onto a large sheet of construction paper.
  5. Hang up for display for the entire family to admire.

Creating these Thankful Turkeys is a fun Thanksgiving craft for the entire family.
