Turkey Print

This is a fun Thanksgiving craft you can do with the gang at the kids table or use for décor for your celebration. We did this entirely with things we had on hand at home. If you don't have canvases, you can use cardstock or cardboard or plain paper. I usually stock up on the bulk packs of canvases at the craft store whenever I see them on sale and then we have some lying around for occasions like this.
