Thanksgiving is coming soon! It might be a little different this year, but enjoy a long weekend of fun, food, and lots of family time! Here’s an easy and fun craft for the whole family:
What you need:
- Optional: felt tip marker
What to do:
- Trace your hand or your child’s with a marker or crayon
- Use crayons or markers to draw in and colour a turkey
- Have fun with it!
You and your child can make just one, or make a turkey for each person at Thanksgiving dinner! Place them on each plate, not only for decoration but for conversation too!
Making crafts together is a good way to bond with your child, and the talking that comes from working together is building an important literacy skill. A bonus is the hand coordination that comes from drawing, which will help with writing skills in the future.
