Can you believe that Thanksgiving is less then a week away? This year has just flown by. I am still trying to decide whether I want to spend the time cooking a huge Thanksgiving meal or just ordering one from the store. I love cooking the meal but wondering if the time it takes to make it is worth the effort. Hmmm, guess I better hurry and decide. I may not be prepared for the actual Thanksgiving feast but at least I am having a good time doing some fun crafts with my boys. It has become a good time to talk about Thanksgiving and gets them to show interest and ask question.
We started our craft time by doing a simple color page I printed from the Internet. I like to have them start by coloring so I have time to get the other crafts ready.
I found this Kool-Aid Pumpkins crafts here. I wasn't sure how it would turn out but had all the supplies so decided to give it a shot. The boys enjoyed it and after several washings still have red fingers from touching the Kool-Aid.
Start out by putting plastic report covers down. Spray them with spray starch and sprinkle Kool-Aid all over the starch.
Once the Kool-Aid is sprinkled use a white piece of card stock and lay it over the Kool-Aid. Rub it gently to get the Kool-Aid to stick. Peel it off and let it dry.
Once the paper is dry, draw a picture and cut it out.
While we waited for the starch/Kool-Aid to dry we decided to have a snack. I saw these teepees on the Internet somewhere and thought the boys would love it.
We dipped the bottom of the teepee in some melted chocolate and then into some sprinkles. I cut the tip off the cones and used some more chocolate to stick the pretzels to the top.
We will be back tomorrow with Day 5 of our Thanksgiving countdown.
