I decided this was a great activity for our classroom art center. I put paper turkey copies in the art center along with a variety of colors of construction paper, scissors, glue, crayons and markers. I loved seeing what they came up with on their own with no help from a family member.
In the past, I have given ideas of what they could do with their turkeys, but this year I left it to chance and they only got the farm animal ideas from the story. Below are some examples of their work.

Do you do a special activity for Thanksgiving? How much guidance do you give? After this year, I'm thinking "less is more". Happy Thanksgiving!
