1 2 3 4 5 6 7 We hosted Thanksgiving dinner at our house this year- potluck style. We had more than 30 people come over and really enjoyed ourselves.
This year I thought about the hungry, little people that would be waiting for dinner to be served.  I printed out a few activity sheets and coloring sheets for them.  I also made little turkeys out of apples for them.  I got the idea from Elizabeth at Dear Lizzy.  Instead of using felt for the turkey faces like she did, I used edible items I had on hand instead.  The idea of these turkeys is that kids can add "feathers" using toothpicks and some finger foods- I used cheese cubes, grapes, and marshmallows.
Earlier in the week, I made the sandwich turkeys above for my girls.  I was inspired by this picture.

Be back soon!


  1. Yum, everything looks delish! I'm going to have to pin that turkey for next year. Looks like you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    1. The turkeys were so fun for the kids! I will definitely be doing this again next year. :)
