I found these large giant rolls of brown paper at the home depot (In the paint aisle!)

I’m having a craft day and thought they would be perfect to cover the tables. THEN I thought they would look cute across our thanksgiving table with a bunch of crayons on it so the kids can color why the food is cooking….

and I’m insane and I knew I couldn’t just toss some crayons out on the table…they needed a turkey holder!

I work a lot with Floracraft®  Make it fun crafts--so I have a lot of foam laying around.and the rest is a history!

and I couldn’t decide what shape I wanted to make–so I made two! (good thing we have LOTS of kids in your family!)  easy turkey crayons holders made with foam for your thanksgiving table First one:
