Thanksgiving Craft: Turkey Card

Thanksgiving is just over a week away! Are you still looking for a fun activity to do with your class? We here at NationalSchoolSupply.com have come up with a fun craft to get your students in the Thanksgiving spirit!

Often the meaning of Thanksgiving is forgotten amid the excitement of a big meal and family. It is important that students realize that Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on what they are thankful for. To help with that we present this craft…a turkey card!

Students will make a fun card in the shape of a turkey for a family member, friend, or whoever they want! This can be used for them to express that they are thankful and grateful for this person. It is a fun way to remind students of what is important during the holiday season.

Until next time!
