As I was thinking today what I was going to write, I realized we have less than two weeks until we wake up to the smell of the turkey in the oven and the parade on the tv. This book reminded me of my childhood with the parade on the television while my mom was cooking. Then to go to visit relatives that we only saw that one holiday a year. Where the table was full of food and the dessert table was just as big.
So we started thinking about what could we use on our Thankgiving table that would remind us of this book. We decided to make napkin rings with pilgrim hats on them. Here are some pictures and directions if you want to create some to add to your table.
This is what our napkin rings look like for Thanksgiving day.
1 toilet paper roll
6x6 in piece of black foam
4 small wooden flower pots
1. Cut the toilet paper roll into 4 equal parts, then use one of the rings as a pattern for the hat brims.
2. Wrap the paper rings with black yarn, you will need to use the glue to glue the yarn end on the
inside of the ring.
3. Then paint the wooden flower pots black.
4. Glue time!! My favorite time of the project when everything comes together.
You will have to bare with me I do not type or write a smoothly as Hallie, but I do love to come up with new crafts to try. I hope you enjoyed the book and would love to hear what treasures you have created to celebrate Thanksgiving with your kiddos.
