Thanksgiving Crafts & Books

I went crazy with the Thanksgiving crafts last year! Here's a few of my favorite crafts and activities to celebrate my favorite holiday...

Mod-podged leaves labeled with all those things we are most thankful for hang decorated our table for the season.



I made an appliqued hand print turkey for each person in our family. The girls were thrilled to pull them out again this year and see how much their hands have grown.



I love these guys so much. I think we'll need to do them again this year.



And of course we read a slew of Thanksgiving-related books...

  6. Those turkey placemats are just too cute! Awesome that you are getting some use out of that sewing machine. I am so proud of you, my friend!

  7. I made a gratitude tree, but the leaves were just out of paper...I totally love that you used real leaves and just Mod Podged the things you are grateful for onto it! I will definitely have to keep that in mind for next year.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!
