with Thanksgiving just a week away it is time to start thinking about fun activities to keep your LITTLE TURKEYS entertained next week and on the big turkey day!  as i created the LITTLE TURKEY printable collection i kept that in mind creating numerous fun and interactive projects to keep little hands busy. from coloring pages to turkey headbands, this collection is sure to bring smiles all around!  in fact, all of the LITTLE TURKEY craft projects have been kid tested and approved by my niece and nephew![paragraph split]THE LITTLE TURKEY HEADBAND[paragraph split]all you will need to create this cute turkey day accessory are scissors, tape and a stapler.  simply print out the PDF design, cut and create your own little turkey “hat.”

next up.  PLACE CARDS!  this is one of my favorites in this collections.  i love the BIG square size and the idea of creating striped clothes pins not only to hold the place card but to imitate the turkey’s striped legs.[paragraph split]all you will need to create the little legs are clothes pins, orange and white striped paper from this collection or any craft store and glue or modpodge. cut your paper to size, add to the clothes pin and you have TURKEY legs!

this next craft was a fun favorite of my nephew!  this craft will allow your little turkeys to use their imaginations in putting together their own turkey.  this craft sheet has the individual parts of the turkey that can be cut out and put back together again.  i made my pieces into a fun turkey fan! {and as you see, my little turkey almost lost his cute little printable life to a little boy with a chocolate face and his scissors!}

iron-on transfers!  have you ever tried them?  now that i have used them and realized JUST HOW EASY they are to apply i am LOOKING for things to add my LITTLE TURKEY iron-on transfer to.  i promise you – it is so simple to use!  iron-on transfer paper can be purchased at your local craft supply store or on Amazon.

your little turkeys will feel so special with their very own personalized placemats!  aren’t these just the cutest?  i had my local printers print this 11×17 PDF file on gloss paper and then laminate using 10 mil weight lamination.  they turned out wonderfully. the cost will differ per printer, but i paid about $7.00 for each finished product.

if you are looking for a fun game to play might i suggest to you a game we fondly called turkey toss.  i wrapped cans in cute scrapbook paper and painted each top a bright orange.  i thought it would be fun to throw a stuffed turkey at the cans so i purchased mine through Amazon. {as you can see, Amazon and i are great friends!}
