Thanksgiving Crafts & Games Past and Present


We did this fun and easy craft this year so far. We got the idea from Crafts for Thanksgiving by Kathy Ross.
 We changed the craft a bit because I wanted to put the corn on something stiffer than felt. I had these natural wood pieces and thought they would look nice and work well. Hazel had so much fun gluing on the Indian corn.
After the glue had dried a bit, I glued on magnets. We gave two of them as gifts. Our children's librarian just left for a new job, so we gave one to her and one to Hazel's best friend who always gives her gifts. 


We plan to use the rest on our Thanksgiving table so each guest can take one home.
