Thankful Turkey (Free Printable)

This free printable thankful turkey is a great way to show gratitude this Thanksgiving! A fun and easy activity to enjoy with your family during the holiday season.

We usually fill out a family thankful tree each Thanksgiving, but this year we decided to switch it up with this adorable thankful turkey. The concept is the same, but the design is different. My kids (especially the younger ones) absolutely loved this version!

This is a fun tradition that my family and I love to do together around Thanksgiving. It’s simple, inexpensive and a great way for each family member to show what they’re most grateful for this holiday season.

Everyone can print out their own turkeys, or you can use one for the whole family. We printed out individual turkeys this year and then taped them to each of our bedroom doors. I smile every time I walk past each of the kid’s rooms and see them!
