The Thanksgiving Feast You Don’t Want to Eat

My mouth is already watering just thinking about Thanksgiving dinner!

I adore eating turkey.

You can bet that I will be the first one in my family shamelessly stuffing Ziploc bags of leftover bird to take home for extra deliciousness for the rest of the week.

What do you love about Thanksgiving dinner?

The mashed potatoes, the cranberry sauce, the pumpkin bread?

Whatever your taste buds crave, these 5 fun crafts celebrate our nation’s beloved feast, but unfortunately won’t fill any Ziplocs with leftovers.

And, finally, I have told y’all before (much to my embarrassment) that I do not sew.  I cannot even sew a button.

Around these parts, if someone loses a button, I make a speedy drive to my mother’s where she teaches me for the millionth time how to sew a button and then I promptly forget as soon as I drive back home. :-)

So, I doubt you will find me whipping up the above spectacular Thanksgiving Felt Food Feast from the super talented lady over at Smashed Peas and Carrots, but I had to share because if I could sew, this is what I’d be working on this month – no doubt!

With all these great projects in honor of America’s best meal ever – I have to ask, what’s the key to a great Thanksgiving dinner?

The turKEY.

Get it?


Happy Thanksgiving Dinner Craft-ing! :-)

  1. LOVE your blog. Just found it through The Homeschool Post blog awards (you were nominated for an award…did you know that?) and you, lady, are full to the brim of great ideas. And you’re fun to read, too! My favorite idea on this post is those cupcakes. How cute are those? I think the key to a great Thanksgiving dinner is not stressing out so much about what the kids eat. It’s one day. My kids eat really well all the rest of the year, and so when they are excited to be with their cousins and run and play…if their Thanksgiving dinner consists of pickles, olive, a bun, and a piece of pie…so be it. :)

The Fairy would love to hear from YOU! :-) Seriously, it's my favorite. Leave a comment!
