Giving Thanks

We made a Thanksgiving tree to share all of the things we are thankful for....this makes a great activity at the kids table and it is so fun to see what the kids come up with.....I got these adorable printables at http://thetomkatstudio.com/---I am using them on our dessert table tomorrow too!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

Turkey Pumpkin

Ok, so we attempted to make the adorable fruit and veggie turkey on the Martha Stewart website..... clearly our version does not have as much detail as hers--but we had a lot of fun creating it!
This is the foam pieces used to create the turkey neck and head.......there is a video on Martha's site on how to make this turkey---check it out, if your up for this last minute challenge....gobble, gobble..........

A mini Thanksgiving

We take any opportunity to pretend, party and play in this house......one of the things we love to do is decorate my daughter's doll house! We are hosting Thanksgiving this year so we decided to set up a mini turkey meal!

I am creating a dessert table this year....and here is our mini version of it.
Well I guess it is time to stop playing and start getting ready for the real thing--happy turkey prepping!

Kids table fun!

I put together little turkey coloring kits for the kids on Thanksgiving.....it is always great to have some activities at the table to help the kids sit through a long extended meal---especially after eating such a big meal and the moms and dads need some time to sit back, relax and digest!

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

last year we decided to have a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving....we first watched the movie....
and then ate the very famous meal that Snoopy made: toast, pretzel sticks, popcorn, jelly beans and ice cream! This is a fun activity to do on Thanksgiving to keep the kiddos entertained while the real meal is being prepared!

Turkey Cookies

We decided to use some of our Halloween and create some turkey cookies....we had a ton of Tootsie Rolls and decided it would be perfect for our cookies. It is very easy to mold and bend but a little bit sticky......we did not have any Starburst candy left (my sons favorite) but I am pretty sure any type of taffy type candy would work too.........

Here are some photos of the turkey cookies we made last year using candy corns.........
Please let me know if you if you run across any fab turkey cookie or cup cake creations--I would love to check them out!!
