Let's Talk Turkey

Okay, so it just seems natural that turkey should be a popular theme given the upcoming holiday, but let it be known out there that I've never cooked turkey in my life. Ever. This holiday will be no different. I do all the baking and usually some sort of side, and that is plenty enough for me. So, we're celebrating the turkey through fun bento-style lunches instead. That is a turkey that I can handle preparing! Enjoy!

In addition to fun lunches, we also did some fun turkey worksheets and projects. Thanks to 1+1+1=1, MakingLearningFun, 3 Dinosaurs, Homeschool creations, and Creative Learning Fun for all the fantastic printables and idea inspiration.
