Making Thanksgiving Story Time Fun

turkey time with kids

Kids are going to love this cute craft, snack, and story time that’s perfect for not only kids who are just learning to read and need a quiet activity to do on their own, but also for the littlest ones, who love nothing more than a snuggle, a snack and a book being read to them.

This is what you will need to make the adorable turkey juice box:

  • card stock – brown (I used two shades), orange, red, green, yellow
  • Googly eyes
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Note: make sure you remove the straw from the juice box before you begin making the wrapper, otherwise it will be impossible for your child to pull out from behind the wrapper later.

Measure the height of your juice box and then wrap a tape measure all the way around it allowing an extra 1/2 to 1 cm in width. Cut the card stock to the measurements you took, wrap it around the juice box and glue it in place, making sure the join is at the back.

Cut a feather out of one color of card stock. It doesn’t have to be perfect and this is a great project for kids to do. Use that feather as a template and trace around it on the other colors of card stock. Cut them out and glue them onto the back of the juice box.

Cut out the wattle and beak from red and orange card stock and glue them onto the front of the juice box along with the googly eyes.

Serve your juice box turkey with a bowl of sliced apples.

This is the perfect snack for kids to enjoy while reading their favorite Thanksgiving books.
