This year's turkey day seemed to be a success. We packed up a couple of baskets and met my sister at their company office so she could get some work done during the turkey crafting and snacking fun.
This year we tried paint and forks to make turkeys...it was fun, but took forever to dry. Thankfully we had a turkey cheese ball snack (I improvised from this idea) and turkey trivia to answer while we waited.
Oh and turkey trivia meant prizes for everyone. Late the night before I couldn't resist getting out colored pencils for the prize bags tags.
Then our other craft was Uncle Seany's idea. He suggested the kids decorate bags for each person to take home Thanksgiving leftovers...yet another example of how seriously we take leftover packing. It'll be fun to surprise everyone with those carefully drawn out bags in a couple of days.
I was teasing with my nephew and nieces that our turkey day crafting tradition will certainly continue when they are super cool teenagers. They are nine, eight and seven, so I know there are barely a few turkey days ahead, so I am trying to soak up every fun moment of our own extra day of Thanksgiving traditions.
