We say “Thanksgiving.” And you say – the turkey and all the delicious menu items that go along with it, right? We’re on the same page! And this year, why not think about all of the crafting opportunities the big day brings as well? From creating a fun table design scheme to cooking up a few activities for the kids to enjoy while waiting for dinner (like Make It’s wood-disc-and-sticker Memory game!), Thanksgiving and the final weeks of autumn can be quite the crafty time. Flip through this gallery for four projects to get you and your family started.
