Time for Turkey!
Believe it or not, Thanksgiving is around the corner—literally, it’s next week. I have a particular fondness for autumn crafts, when kids can run into the backyard to gather their supplies (sticks, pinecones, bark, etc.).
Check out the November issue of Parents where we made a centerpiece from sticks, napkin rings from acorns, and trivets from wood rounds. We also featured this precious turkey place card (let’s call him Max), made from corks, feathers, and other simple craft supplies (including feet fashioned out of bobby pins!).
After you figure out your most important task (the menu planning) then begin to gather your craft supplies so that you and your little Pilgrims can decorate a memorable Thanksgiving table!
