Counting Down to Turkey Time

Yesterday one of my favorite kid/family craft blogs, Make and Take, posted about making a paper turkey as a way of counting down to Thanksgiving. I thought it was a cute idea. I loved doing our Halloween countdown tree. However, I was more than happy that I only did 8 days since I was giving "treat/gift" type things, it's a lot of work to be organized, hide stuff, write little notes, make time to do it, etc. We will be doing a Christmas Advent Calendar similar to the Halloween one so this turkey is a great alternative: no gifts/treats. Each day one member of our family is going to tell one thing they are thankful for and I'll write it on a feather. When all the feathers are filled, it will be turkey time! Addison and I made our turkey together. We used some of my scraps of scrapbook paper. She loves "projects". She even cut the big turkey body out all by herself! Here's the directions from Make and Take if you want to join in. I'll be posting our gratitudes everyday (hopefully) to let you know all the stuff our family is thankful for!

I am thankful for my wonderful family. ~ Mommy

I found your blog through a comment you left about your turkey. What a cute idea! I think I will give it a try!

Thanks for the positive comment on my blog today. It went a little downhill after that. I realized I may have stepped in blog poo. Your support meant a lot.

Good luck tomorrow.
