A Thankful Thanksgiving

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

Here is a great way to get ready for Thanksgiving and the true meaning behind this scrumdiddlyumptious holiday.

We know we're a few days late for this one but it is really simple and you can just do two of them on a couple of days to catch up. A Thanksgiving Countdown! We first saw this over at Blue Cricket Design and knew we had to do this with our little ones. Here is how we did ours.

Create and print thankful countdown ideas. Cut them out, roll them up into little scrolls and tape. Next, place them all in a jar. And each day until Thanksgiving pull one out and do what it suggests. Very fun and the kids really do look forward to doing this each day.

We already had the jar, we just added some ribbon and a leaf. And printed the thankful label on card stock, cut it out and stuck it on with double sided tape. Awe, how pretty!

We have included our Thankful label here if you want to print it and use it. Just right click on it and print.

Label created with elements from Just So Scrappy.

Our old jar did not have a lid. So we thought and thought and remembered, we have a huge mayo jar that is almost empty in the fridge. Humm, I wonder?? Yes! It fits! How great is that? But that dark blue lid was ugly, so we covered it with some scrapbook paper. Doesn't it look great?
 We hope you have as much fun with this as we are.
