Burlap Toilet Roll Turkey

Gobble up this adorable fall craft! The Burlap Toilet Roll Turkey is one of the best easy Thanksgiving crafts because little hands can make it, but it still looks absolutely fabulous. Thanksgiving crafts for kids are always fun, but sometimes they're too messy to be displayed. This Thanksgiving craft, though, will be used as the table centerpiece since it's classy, cute, and put together. Look no further for preschool Thanksgiving crafts that older kids will also love to make. There's no age limit for this terrific turkey.
