Turkey Napkin Holder

We all have empty toilet paper rolls - and if you don't have one now, then you'll have one in a day or two! Here's a little something to make with them for Thanksgiving with your kids - napkin holders!

This is a project we made last year and have saved to re-use again this Thanksgiving. First cut your tp rolls into smaller pieces - one roll can probably make three napkin rings. We painted ours brown, but you can skip this step if you want. Next we painted some craft sticks with fall colors. I cut them myself and Molly (4) glued them onto the tp turkey as a tail in back, and a neck and head in front. Add two little eyes and some red pipe cleaner (or marker or paper) for a waddle. I hot-glued ours on for good measure.

Now you have a cute and special napkin holder! Make one for everyone at your Thanksgiving table and you can also write their names on the turkey as a place card too. Hopefully talking about your toilet paper roll turkey is the only "potty talk" at your big family dinner this year!
