Cinnamon Sugar Turkey Kid Craft

cinnamon sugar turkey craftThanksgiving is a week from today. I have made no secret about the fact that Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday. I love everything about it. Family, friends, good food. What can be better? I usually host Thanksgiving at my home, and one of my favorite things to do is decorate the kid’s table. I like to make it special for them. I am not one to go all out with elaborate tablescapes or decorations, but a few special things can really make them feel like they are a part of the celebration. Cooking Thanksgiving dinner can be a wee bit stressful, so I have a kid’s snack tray on their table to keep them happy while I am getting dinner together. Goldfish, cheese, grapes, carrot sticks, maybe some nuts. The funny thing, the adults always end up at the kid’s snack tray. Never fails. I print out some coloring pages, put crayons in mason jars, and usually have a little treat for each kid. This year I found these headpieces, I can’t even deal with how excited I am about them. The kids are busy, they are out of the kitchen, and everyone is happy.

We made these super cute place mats after school this week to decorate the kid’s table. It took 15 minutes from start to finish. Minimal clean up and the kids loved it. That is my kind of craft. These turkey place mats smell amazing. Cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg. They are going to look so cute on the kid’s table. Head over to the Kids Kitchen at the Dixie Crystals website, they have some adorable Thanksgiving crafts over there.

Paint your child’s hand with a generous amount of glue.

    Where did you find a cinnamon grinder and does it grind the entire stick? My mom had one from mccormick (who no longer makes it) but you can’t refill it so I am looking for anew one for her stocking this christmas.

    I bought it at the grocery store. But you can also just use a cinnamon stick and a fine meshed grater. https://www.amazon.com/Drogheria-Alimentari-Natural-Grinder-Cinnamon/dp/B001EO5WGS
