MILK JUG TURKEY GAME

Wash an empty plastic milk jug and cut off the top section where the lid attaches. (An adult can do this with a craft knife.) Paint the jug, adding wings and a red gobbler. Glue a pom pom to the top of the handle for the head and add giggle eyes and a construction paper or craft foam beak. Cut tail feathers from construction paper or craft foam pieces and glue them to the back. To play a game, stand above the turkey and drop pencils or clothespins and see how many you can get inside the turkey jug. Hold the pencil or clothespin in your hand and place your hand at the level of your nose while standing over the jug. Drop the item from "nose level". This makes the game fair for all ages.

Thanksgiving Tree

by Kas Winters

This kit comes with an 11" x 17" black and white drawing of a leafless tree (similar to the photo above) and several sheets of autumn colored paper with leaf shapes for you to cut out. Write something for which you are thankful on each leaf and attach them to the tree. Have everyone in the family, friends and anyone who comes to your door in November add a leaf. (We even have one from the pizza delivery guy on ours.) At dinner on Thanksgiving, read the leaves or have each guest fill out one to include on the tree and read these leaves as part of a prayer of thanksgiving.

11" x 17" sheet with black and white tree plus 3 sheets of autumn colored 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" paper with leaf shapes .

Usually shipped within 3-6 days.
