Supplies You'll Need

Depending on if you'll go with the poster board route, or with the jumbo craft sticks depends on what supplies you'll need.


Simply print on white copy paper, or card stock, and cut them out.  If you choose to laminate them, you can cut them out before or after. It's up to you. It may be easier for the younger kids to cut before laminating. Now it's time to either glue the characters on a poster board or attach a jumbo craft stick to the back of each character with tape or glue.

Now, it's time to make some great memories! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! <3
