Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. I love the food, the family time, and all the yummy desserts. Involving the kids in the preparations makes the anticipation even greater. Each year, I give my kids an activity to do before we pack up and make the trip to visit family for Thanksgiving. We made these place cards several years ago, and I have to say, they are still one of my favorites. To make these cute turkey place cards for your Thanksgiving table you will need card stock in plain colors, scrapbooking paper in various fall prints for the feathers, and buttons or googly eyes. Cut out rectangles of card stock and fold in half for the cards, cut out the basic turkey shape, small orange triangles for beaks, red squiggly gobbles, and feathers in various prints. Hand out glue sticks and let your kids get creative with the design of their turkeys. Leave some room on one side to place the names. I just printed a list of names off of the computer and then backed them with dark brown card stock to make them pop. These little place cards looked perfect on our Thanksgiving table, and my kids were very proud of their creations! #CommissionsEarned
