Craft: Hand Print Turkeys Supplies: Construction paper (red, brown, orange, and yellow) Googly eyes Felt (yellow) Baby food jar (with label peeled off) Glitter

Themed activities with your child are a great way to incorporate upcoming holidays and learning. Both nannies and families can enjoy this Thanksgiving Bingo activity from Better Home and Gardens.

This way children of various ages within the group can all be involved. This activity and the PDF to print the bingo cards can be viewed here.
