Ok, so I know how overdue this is but I'm finally getting around to the holiday posts!
I had Thanksgiving with my family and invited my friend and her family to my moms house as well. So, it was my first Thanksgiving to put together a KIDS TABLE which I was so excited for!
I also wanted a few GAMES for the kids to play and stay occupied for awhile so the adults could finish the cookin.
Turkey Hunt Game
I found a turkey on Google images, resized it, printed a bunch of them out and colored them, cut them out and glued them onto popsicle sticks for a turkey hunt game. This could be an indoor or outdoor game but because it was so nice on Thanksgiving I held the hunt outdoors. I hid the turkeys before everyone got there. They had a blast looking for the turkeys in my mom's backyard.
Turkey Handprint Craft
The kids made these really cute handprint turkeys with feathers I cut out from paint color samples, googly eyes, and a beak and waddle. They traced their hands and then added everything else themselves with glue. I love how they turned out!
Fall Sensory Bin
I brought our Fall Sensory Bin for them to play with as well. Sensory bins are always a hit!
and then dinner was ready! My mom had such a beautiful setup!
Each kids table included a I'm Thankful For...color sheet as well as a cup of crayons. Oh! I made those turkey cups too! I just hot glued googly eyes, and a beak and waddle onto brown cups and used the same paint color samples from Lowe's for the feathers. This kept them busy while parents filled their plates!
and my pretzel/rolo bites which i'm proud to say
I was making years BEFORE Pinterest was even invented! haha! They are always such a hit!
and there you have it! Almost 3 months later....my Thanksgiving post! It really was a wonderful Thanksgiving! I wonder how long it'll be till I get around to my Christmas post?!
