Thanksgiving Countdown Ideas: Crafting Some Turkey Fun!

Today's Thanksgiving Countdown Idea will help add some Turkey Cheer to your celebration. Whether there is an assigned children's table, dessert buffet, or just a special place setting for the little ones, these turkeys are sure to be a hit.

Push Pops are a fun way to serve mini cupcakes, pudding, or even candy to your {little} guests. And, a push pop dressed up like a turkey is even more fun, don't you think!

No push pops? How about dressing up your pedestal bowls instead? Wouldn't these be cute to serve pudding, ice cream, or even a little fruit salad in.

These turkey "costumes" are easy to create. Using construction/craft paper, cut out different colored feathers, a turkey face, beak, gobbler, and hat. Using a 2" scalloped punch, punch out 3 or more scallops to attach feathers onto and to assemble turkey head.

Now you can attach your turkey to a push pop, pedestal bowl, or any other serving vessel of your choice. I used a hot glue gun but glue dots may also work. Have fun with this one. Gobble, gobble!
