Thanksgiving Craft: Make a Rock Turkey

Thanksgiving Craft: Make a rock turkey for a cute place setting!

I love setting the Thanksgiving table. One of my favorite things at the Thanksgiving table, besides you know the food, is a really cute name place card. This year, I made really cute Rock Turkey name place cards for the kids Thanksgiving table.

Let the glue dry to make sure it sets. You can be done here, or you can add a name tag to make it a place setting for the kids’ Thanksgiving table. To add the name tag, just print off the name on a piece of card stock and cut into strips.

Set the Rock Turkey name card on top of a stack of cute patterned paper plates. This makes a place setting any kid will LOVE.
