thanksgiving crafts

If tracing your hand and turning it into a turkey is your only experience making Thanksgiving crafts, you’ll be happy to know they have evolved since you were in kindergarten. We have a variety of Thanksgiving crafts for you to make, all centered on the harvest and giving thanks. Start with an invite, then make place holders once you know who’s coming for dinner. A menu at everyone’s place could be considered over the top, but hey, it’s the holidays. And Thanksgiving crafts are not limited to paper, scissors and glue: Our idea for a special butter can easily be considered a craft, and it’s so yummy.
