It seems, to me at least, that Fall is the time I really get excited about crafts. DIY crafts for me, for the home and for my kids. I don’t always get them all done, in fact I rarely get them all done. I usually have lofty goals and dreams when it comes to these things. But, oh how I love to look at all the ideas and try to pick a few of my favorites that are a MUST to do.

Today I have rounded up some of my favorite Turkey-Day crafts for you. And what would Thanksgiving be without the quintessentialTurkeycrafts?!

Toilet Paper Roll Turkey – All Kids Network shows you how to make this super cute and easyTurkey using up those leftover Toilet Paper Rolls!!

Leaf Turkey – Moments of Mommyhood shows how to use some of the beautiful leaves that may be all over your yard to make a turkey. Yard clean up and a craft! WOOT!
