More Turkey!

At today's NHCS StoryCrafters hour, we read one of my favorite holiday books - Thankgiving at the Tappletons. It tells the story of a big family whose Turkey Day goes terribly wrong, until they remember a special reason to celebrate. Can you guess what it is?

Our final fall craft was a turkey, of course! He's made from a paper towel tube with paper face and wings. His feathers in the back are made with a sheet of white paper, colorfully striped, then accordion folded, folded in half, and stuck in the center. Fan out the paper and he looks a bit like a tom turkey - with a tail of full feathers!
Take out the paper, replace it with a napkin, and there's a turkey napkin holder for your Thanksgiving table!
