If the year 2020 has taught us anything, it’s gratitude. We’re forever grateful for our loved ones, our health care heroes, and after the presidential election, our democracy! 

For many of us, this Thanksgiving in particular will be a chance to share our heartfelt thanks. To make the holiday feel extra special this year, why not add a creative element to the festivities with these fun and easy Thanksgiving turkey crafts.

It’s a great way to bring the family together, slow down, and be present — a wonderful nod to the true meaning of the holiday: gratitude. Besides, who doesn’t love adorable craft turkeys with googly eyes? Maybe this will mark the beginning of a fun holiday tradition you and your family will love for years to come.
