Crafts to be Thankful For
Here are a few of our favorite fall crafts to create during this fun season.
Turkey Crackers: Every feast needs a fun little party surprise. Taking plain holiday crackers and turning them into turkeys is a fun way to cheer up guests.
Honeycomb Pumpkins: Every day the kids pick out one pumpkin and we open up the honeycomb and do what is inside. It’s a fun way to welcome the season and gives us specific activities to do together.
Felt Magnolia Wreath: This magnolia felt wreath has a very traditional vibe, with a burst of fun and fresh color. It’s a great statement wreath to greet guests at the front door. The texture of the felt will hold up great to the whooshing of opening and closing a door and the style is wonderfully pulled together with a great imperfect crafted feel. Exactly the casual welcome we all long to make.
Tissue Fall Tree Craft: I love how scrunching up and adding tissue paper onto the tree is great for fine motor skills for younger kids but that it’s also a fun craft for older children making it a perfect family activity.
