Thanksgiving crafts: 6 ways to share your thankfulness

I’ve been having a lot of fun with recipes and cute turkey crafts this week, but of course the most important part about Thanksgiving is simply giving thanks. There are so many creative, kid-friendly ways to share your gratitude that it’s going to take me two round-ups to share all of my favorite ideas! Here’s part one:

1. Create a painted clothespin wreath – via Chica and Jo

2. Make a yarn turkey and add paper feathers – via

3. Have your kids create a collage depicting what they’re thankful for – via U Create

4. Keep lists of what you’re thankful for and how you’re giving back – via HowDoesShe
