Thanksgiving craft

These just turned out too cute!

{So sorry they aren't arranged all fancy! With me, we are just happy to have a couple pics!}

I was thinking I needed - ok, really, wanted - to do a Thanksgiving craft, but I couldn't find any that I liked - that didn't include painting hands or feet or something that just scares me to death! {and super kudos to anyone who undertakes those type of adventures!!!}. 

Then Pinterest to the rescue. I actually pinned this a while back. And I was at the grocery store and saw this bag of very colorful spiral pasta, and grabbed it. I think they turned out pretty cute, and still show the individualness {I'm so sure that's a word!} of my kiddos. 

I gave them a 6 inch square of orange paper. Then I gave them a 3 inch circle and a 2 inch circle in brown. I opened up my box of scraps and let them go to it. They made their own beak, waddle, eyes and feet. After they got those done, they glued on the pasta. Some appear to be more in love with pasta than others. 

And ya know, if you wanted to make it all educational - and if I'd been thinking ahead of time - we are doing "how to" writing. I could've had them write how to make a pasta turkey. 

Anyway, just loving the cuteness - and enjoying a chance to let my kiddos be creative! 


  1. They are precious! Sometimes that scrap box is the best thing ever! I love all the personality they each have! :)

    1. Oh my goodness - that scrap box is the best thing ever! I think some of these poor kiddos haven't had one at home, which is just almost impossible for me to think of -
      I was thinking I need to just have a day {afternoon} where I get the scrap box out and give them a piece of construction paper and let them make whatever THEY want. No directions from me!
      Well, that will surely be after Christmas!!

  2. I love the individualness too. :)
