Inside: These are our favorite colorful turkey crafts for preschoolers that focus on thankfulness. Printable included!
As we get closer to Thanksgiving in our preschool classroom, we add some thankfulness activities to our curriculum.
We read books about what being thankful means, we sing songs, and we make a thankful craft at the art table.
Every year I change it up a bit, so I decided it would be fun to share 3 of our turkey crafts for preschoolers.
Each of these turkeys shows what our preschoolers are thankful for. They are then displayed at our Thanksgiving feast for all our families to see.
