Preschool Craft – Paper Bag Turkey


This is a bit of a throwback craft. The picture was originally taken in 2009 before I decided to own a blog. Therefore, the picture quality was not at the forefront of my mind! But despite the pixels you can get the gist of the craft (I hope!). This craft is actually included in my Thanksgiving Preschool Pack too.
