Making invitations for our Thanksgiving feast in preschool

Add a personal touch to your Thanksgiving celebration with kid made invitations

The children are preparing for a thanksgiving feast at our school. They started by making these turkey hand print invitations. The parents are invited to come in and join the children for the big day…

The How-To

We used fall colors to paint each child’s hand…

The palm of the hand is painted brown and the fingers are each a different color for the turkey feathers…

After the hand is painted, then the child makes a print on the card…

Once the hand print is on the card, the children can then make more hand prints on our group collage as desired or if they prefer, they can go wash up!

Colorful Handprint Turkeys

We have printed out the date and time on a separate sheet of paper for the children to cut and paste inside their card.  We hope we get lots of guests for our special feast!

Inside the card

We included a message with event details inside each card

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
