Christian Thanksgiving Crafts For Kids?

I am the leader of a Girl Scout troop. We need good Thanksgiving crafts for 8 year old christian boys and girls. Easy, fun and entertaining for kids.
I was told that i had to come up with a few thanksgiving crafts. Im running out of ideas! Please can you help me think of some fun crafts that aren't too complex that they can take home?
