You can easily use my preschool thankful turkey craft as part of your paper bag art days in the classroom or at home.

Turkey Place Settings
If you are looking for a fun way to spruce up your kitchen table, place cards or place settings are a great way to do that.
Why not make some your kids will be shaking their turkey tail feathers for?!
First you will cut out all of the shapes from the turkey template, have your little one put them together and then put it either inside a sheet protector or you can really make them last by laminating them.
The secret is to just leave it as is and not cut out the shape.
Paper Plate Turkey Craft
After you and your little ones cut out the turkey template, instead of gluing the pieces together, glue them to a paper plate instead. Add a Popsicle stick to the back and you have a fun turkey themed puppet!
You could even snag up some craft feathers at your local hobby store and glue them on top the printed ones. This will really help make your turkey puppet pop!
