Thanksgiving is all about family, friends and being thankful for the things we have life. What a better way to give thanks than to spend some time with your kids crafting and getting ready for this special day. Granted trying to find the time between the food prep, turkey cooking, pie baking and general planning is always going to be a challenge.
So if you are looking for a fun craft to do with the kids or find a productive way to keep the kids busy while you are preoccupied in the kitchen, then this craft is for you.
Today’s I am posting the templates for a Thanksgiving Turkey Cutlery Holder. This craft is not only super cute but, functional and an excellent way for the kids to contribute to the family Thanksgiving preparations.
