Wednesday’s Wowzers: All About Turkey Day!

Hello friends!

I received an e-mail the other night that absolutely made my day.  One of my former students sent me the most distinguished letter.  She wrote to say hello, to ask if I remembered her, to share what she remembered about me, and to tell me that I was still her favorite teacher.  I have no idea how this sweet girl found me after so many years.  (To think that this sunshiney girl I knew as a 6-year-old is now in 6th grade makes me feel truly old!)

This is the season of gratitude.  I am so grateful for the 100+ first graders who changed my life over the years.  They taught me so much, but most importantly they really taught me about being a mother.  What happy memories this brought to mind!

Today let's give Thanksgiving its due credit! This edition of Wednesday's Wowzers is 100% decorated to Thanksgiving ideas.

There are oodles of fab ideas on this Thanksgiving table for kids at anna and blue paperie.  Be sure to check out the yummy turkeys using pirouette cookies!  YUM!

I need to get my pumpkins out again!  I adore this mantel! The "Give" and "Thanks" are so clever.  Go check out A Diamond In the Stuff for all of the details.

This "With a Grateful Heart" printable would make a lovely addition to any Thanksgiving table.  Go print your own from Landee See, Landee Do.

That Kierste from Brown Paper Packages is so clever!!  These mini pumpkin place cards are the perfect touch for a Thanksgiving plate!

Love everything about this entire display at The Crafting Chicks!!!  But this thankful banner is darling!  I love all of those embellishments!

Aren't these turkey tins fun?!  Imagine them filled with goodies.  I want one of these cute favors from Burton Avenue!

Holly from 504 Main created this family Thanksgiving frame.  Don't you love the metallic feathers in the corners?!  I am loving metallics this fall!

What are some of your favorite Thanksgiving ideas this year?

And are you READY for Thanksgiving this year??

Roll a Turkey! {With Printable}

Thanksgiving is sneaking up on me this year!  My big plans for turkey day projects are quickly giving way to big plans for traveling, cooking, baking, and perhaps even a Disneyland trip!  Time is flying by way too fast.

Little Man and I had so much fun with our Roll a Jack-O-Lantern game at Halloween, I decided to make this "Roll a Turkey" game the very same way!

If you are interested in creating your own game, definitely check out this post where I described how to make the Roll A Jack-O-Lantern game.

Here's the quick rundown:

I covered a magnetic burner cover from the dollar store with cardstock and a protective coat of mod podge for the turkey body.  Then I raided my scrapbook paper stash, cut out and laminated the different body pieces, and applied magnets to each piece.  For this game, you will need:

At least 2 googly eyes

 At least 2 feet

At least 1 head

 At least 1 beak

 At least 1 gobbler

At least 5 feathers

The fun part about this game is that because you are likely to roll a number more than once, your turkey may end up with 3 eyes, 8 feathers, and 2 beaks!  So having extra parts comes in handy!

By the way, I store all of the parts in a ziplock baggie on the underside of the burner cover.  Because of the magnets on the backs of each piece, they stick nicely all on their own!

You can download your own "Roll a Turkey" game sheet here.

I printed mine on yellow cardstock and laminated it.

We are using the same dice I created for the jack-o-lantern game, although you can definitely use a regular game dice!

Gobble, gobble!
