Thanksgiving Turkey Headbands

Cute and colorful turkey headbands are perfect for the Thanksgiving holiday. These are fun to make in a classroom setting, as I made these with my daughter’s school class. Or they are just the activity for the kids to make and wear as a project on Thanksgiving! Make one for everyone at your dinner table!
