This DIY turkey t-shirt Thanksgiving craft for kids is a fun and easy-to-make project to entertain and, at the same time, help with a child's creativity and fine motor skills.
Let's use these special dates to strengthen our relationship with our kids by doing funny project that make us enjoy our time together. Let's get out of the monotony and daily routine.
When children do crafts, they get lots of useful things that will benefit them during their life. It doesn't matter if they don't do beautiful or well-elaborated crafts.
The most important thing here is the process they follow to get those crafts and how they feel when exploring their imagination, learning new things, working as a team, and strengthening their focus, memory, and fine motor skills.
When boys and girls create things, they use the right part of the brain, which is the brain's side to enhance arts, feelings, abstraction, and spatial dimension. Crafts also develop patience and make them learn how to follow step-by-step tasks.
As you can see, doing thanksgiving craft activities help children develop lots of skills, so don't hesitate to share this time with them.
