Thanksgiving day is always a busy day filled with football games, board games, delicious food, and just good family time. Now that our kid table is starting to fill up again with cousins, nieces, and nephews… it’s nice to be able to have some activities and crafts for the little ones to do. These turkey crayon holders are a craft in it of themselves and also a cute way to hold some colorful crayons that go perfectly with coloring books or even printable coloring papers or activity sheets.
We found these adorable Thanksgiving coloring/activity pages over at Paper Trail Designs and they are just so fun for the kids while they are waiting for their meal or even waiting for dessert to be served.
You only need a few supplies for these adorable turkey crayon holders. Most of the steps the kids can do all on their own! You can use either regular glue or a hot glue gun with adult supervision of course.
