As winter draws near, outside time together becomes rare around our house. We compensate with arts and crafts that we can do together as a family. These 25 turkey crafts are all easy to make before or on Thanksgiving and will give you and your little ones time together to strengthen family bonds, which is what Together CountsTM is all about. The crafts are broken down into five categories, and if you click on the title of the craft you will be taken to the step by step instructions.

I try to include my kids in as much of the brainstorming and decision making about what crafts we make, especially around holidays. When it comes to our crafts, it’s not always about doing it a specific way or right and wrong. It’s about having fun together, learning from each other and having a final product in our hands the entire family can be proud of.
