Thanksgiving Craft - Scripture Turkey

Last Friday was the last day of Friday school.  To be honest, I was out of ideas (or desire) to come up with a great Bible themed lesson for my "Bibles for Little Learners" class.  So, I decided to focus on the one thing that made sense - Thanksgiving! 

To keep with the Bible theme, I searched for a simple Bible lesson to read and the story of  The Ten Lepers came up over and over.  I can't find the exact story I read but this one from Church House Collection is pretty close.
I also wanted to focus on a verse.  Just a true reminder of being thankful for what God gives us.  I came across this great idea over at mpmschoolsupplies.
This little turkey was super simple.  I was able to download the turkey and the feathers from Kikicreates.  I made my example using 8 1/2 x 11 card stock but quickly discovered that my turkey was bigger than the paper.  I thankfully (get it HA!) had some 12x12 white scrapbooking paper that I could use for my class.  I would actually recommend printing the Turkey/feathers smaller so that he will fit on regular paper.  Please note, I wrote the words and verse on the items before printing.  Once glued on the paper, the students had to add legs and eyes.  (I use googly eyes whenever I can because they are FUN!!)

This craft is a fun, simple idea for Sunday School or even as a center in a classroom on a day of Thanksgiving fun!
