crafting with grandma - Thanksgiving Thankful Turkey Book!

Thanksgiving is just two weeks from today! I have figured out my menu . . . roasted turkey (of course!) fluffy mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, homemade squash rolls, roasted and herbed squash-sweet potato-red potato cubes, roasted asparagus or brussel sporuts, corn on the cob, pumpkin pie and apple dessert! (Have you decided on your menu yet?)

At any rate, as I browsed on Pinterest this morning, I found a great idea for a craft which will help my family think about what they are thankful for! I'm going to have my grandsons help me make a Thanksgiving, Thankful Turkey Book (you'll find all the simple directions at this link) and then after our dinner, each person will have time to decorate a page in the book to tell/show what they are thankful for this year!

I think this would be a fun craft to make each year and then refer back to it throughout the year to remind ourselves of the many blessings God has given for which we can be thankful!

Do you have any special plans/traditions for helping your family focus on being thankful at Thanksgiving?
