Thanksgiving fun!

Well this post was supposed to happen last night but my dear hubby took my laptop to work with him, along with all my pictures. lol Anyways I just wanted to show some stuff we've been doing to celebrate Thanksgiving. We have been trying to explain to our 4 year old what it means to be thankful. Not as easy as you would think. I used a mason jar and decorated it. I've been trying to write down something we are thankful for on a slip of paper and put it in the jar.

Of course we had to do a couple of kids crafts with our son too. I bought this little turkey kit at Hobby Lobby for a buck! It was super easy since it was all self-adhesive.

We also made a table runner using some old burlap fabric. I cut up some apples to do some stamping

I used a brown marker to add some details to make it look more like apples =)

Lastly, we had 2 pumpkins that never got carved. We bought 6 (not sure what we were thinking lol) to carve and ran out of steam. So I ended up painting them a light brown/tan and using stencils to write "Give" and "Thanks" on them.

I added a little burlap around the stems to finish them off. I think they're pretty cute!
