When family and friends gather it’s always fun to have some special festive decorations, but who has time or money to shop for something you will only use once a year? Luckily, many craft projects will keep your kids busy, and result in beautiful (and adorable) holiday décor.

Let’s start with this colorful bird! This cute little gobbler featured on Amanda’s Parties to Go is both useful and decorative as a Thanksgiving kids’ table topper. If you’re hoping to recreate this sweet little guy for this year’s festive feast, be sure to check out Amanda’s full post for free template downloads and directions on keeping your Crayolas in place. As a bonus, Amanda offers a handful of additional free printables for pilgrim boats, coloring pages, ship sails and other cheerful goodies for plenty of holiday adornments.
