It's Almost Thanksgiving!!!

I can't believe that it is almost Thanksgiving!!!! Where did November go?

What are you plans?

Are you going to go "Over the River and Through the Wood"?

Are you going to get your Turkey at a Turkey Farm

Are you going to tell the story about the First Thanksgiving?

Round up a flock of these paper-bag gobblers

Medium-sized brown bag
Googly eyes
Red balloon
Two large grocery bags
Large rubber band
Time needed: Under 1 Hour
1. To make the head, stuff the bottom of the medium-sized bag with balled-up newspaper. Twist the top of the bag to form a long, skinny neck. 2. Glue the googly eyes and the balloon wattle onto the face. 3. For the turkey's body, use one large bag. Snip a hole through the front of the bag an inch from the bottom and fit the neck into it. Then, stuff the body two thirds full with newspaper. Close the top of the bag with the rubber band. 4. To make tail feathers, cut four large half-circles from the remaining bag and then glue them in layers to the back of the body.

Bosc pear (head)
Melon (body)
Cheese (beak and tail feathers)
Red pepper (snood, feet and side feathers)
Raisins (eyes)
Grapes (tail feathers)
Bamboo skewers
1. Stabilize the melon body by cutting a shallow slice off the rind to form a flat base. Using a section of bamboo skewer, attach a Bosc pear head to the melon, as shown. 2. Cut a cheese triangle beak and red pepper snood. Attach both, along with raisin eyes, to the head with sections of toothpick. 3. Cut red pepper feet and set them in place. For tail feathers, skewer cheese cubes and red grapes, then insert the skewers as shown. Pin pepper side feathers in place with toothpicks.
