Create An Interactive Thanksgiving Family Table

Yesterday I went a little turkey, as in crazy creating turkey crafts for kids.  I was inspired while playing on Pinterest and decided to dream up a few of my own.  This one is my favorite because not only is it adorable, but it is interactive and gets my family involved…even the ones who swear they have no creative bones.

I used brown watercolor paint and watercolor paper.  I dipped my thumb in water then rubbed in on the brown block in the set and pushed it down on the watercolor paper eight times.  I let that dry.

Then I drew feathers and colored them in with watercolor and Tombow Markers  mixed together.

When they were dry, I added felt/button (tiny ones from my Buttons Galore Radical Red stash) gobblers and google eyes and cut them out.  I used Glue Dots to apply them to Mini Bags from Canvas Home and then onto paper tents made from black card stock.  I added family names that I printed.

I totally love them because they not only serve as place cards, but they are interactive thankful bags.  They were created to provide opportunity for us to work together and share what we are thankful for on Thanksgiving.

I love this….Tombow markers on the Thanksgiving table!

I can’t wait until Thanksgiving to do this with my family.  I am most thankful for them and love creating ways for us to connect and share.  Well, to be honest…I didn’t wait.  I have already started.

Gobble Gobble,

Laura
