I remember one year, my mom traced her hands and made a family of turkeys with all the little ones that were gathered for Thanksgiving:
They labeled them to represent all of the family members present. What a great way to talk about family.
I also like the people who show us the decorating potential of these harvest days:
But even a simple arrangement of seasonal squash can become a beautiful decoration:
Of course, there's the time-honored Thanksgiving tradition of cooking as creative opportunity. In my family, we often save that activity for Friday; here we are, in an ill-fated attempt to make gingerbread houses (they kept collapsing):
It's hard for me to do traditional quilting in a short time frame. But there are other ways to play with fabric, ways that may interest the little ones:
Maybe this will be the year for a different creative pursuit; how about a tea party?
In whatever ways you celebrate, I wish you some infusions of creativity to make them even richer!
