When it comes to Thanksgiving desserts I definitely always have to have some pie. It’s not my favorite dessert ever but it’s a Thanksgiving tradition. My daughter on the other hand will not touch pie unless maybe it is chocolate and has tons of whipped cream piled on top. I also add an excessive amount of whipped cream, it runs in the family. I wanted to make a simple Thanksgiving treat that my daughter would eat and could help make. These turkey chocolate pretzels were the perfect Thanksgiving treat for her! She helped with dipping the pretzels in the chocolate and putting on the faces. I like to make a fast dessert that doesn’t require a lot of patience to make. My 5 year old has more patience than some kids but that still is not a lot.
These printable coloring Thanksgiving hats are so cute, easy to make and a fun craft for kids at Thanksgiving. Kids can color in these printable hats on Thanksgiving. They are really cute for picture of kids too. I made a pilgrim hat, feathers, turkey and piece of pie. I had to cover all of the Thanksgiving fun! My daughter loved these coloring Thanksgiving hats. You can also decorate them with other craft supplies like tissue paper, stickers, paint, and pom poms.
What you need to make them:
I love Thanksgiving. All the family, all the food, how can you go wrong?! Kids don’t always have the patience to sit through a long meal. Sometimes they need a little extra entertainment and activities. These little Thanksgiving turkey activity bags are a fun and easy activity to entertain the kids. You can also use play doh or pom pom balls to build a turkey. I used what I had which was paper and they turned out so cute! These are also a fun nonfood Thanksgiving thing to give out to friends. The bags are easy to put together and easy for kids of different ages to make. My daughter is 5 and she had a blast with this activity.
Santa’s coming, Santa’s coming, I know him! I still love Santa and the magic that comes with Santa around Christmas. My daughter believes still and I will keep that going as long as I can. Santa brings presents so why not bring presents to others dressed up as Santa or bring some Santa “kisses”. This DIY Santa gift bags are perfect for school class gifts, gifts to friends or Christmas parties. You can get creative with what you put inside these cute gift bags! It doesn’t just have to be candy, although Hershey Kisses work well for the Santa kisses. I made easy Santa belts to go on the bags. You can use both the gift tag and Santa. You could also pick one or the other depending on your preference.
These mini stockings make for such an easy little garland. Make this easy Christmas stocking garland with a little easy shimmer added. You can also add little candy or surprises inside. This is an incredibly easy Christmas garlang to make and hang up on a mantle or the wall near a Christmas tree.
What you need:
twine or ribbon
glitter stickers (optional)
gold shred or candy to fill stockings
Thread the string onto the stockings. Spread them out slightly. Hang up the garland. Then add the glitter letters. You can spell out Christmas or Merry or have one letter for each stocking.
I know it is not quite Christmas yet…OK it’s not even Halloween but the craft stores have all of the Christmas fun out! I spend too much time in craft stores and have been brainwashed into getting ready for Christmas crazy early. I can’ help it though, I love Christmas! I saw some Santa hats and I thought they would be fun for a game, then I thought of this catch the snowballs in Santa hats Christmas game. It is really fun but be warned your kids will want to play it over and over again! Since we don’t get real snow this close enough for us. It is also a fun game to play inside when there is too much real snow and it is too cold to play outside.
The countdown to Halloween has begun! One of my favorite things to do around Halloween is watch Hocus Pocus. It’s my absolute favorite Halloween movie. Yes, I prefer the funny movies to the scary movies. I can do a little bit of scary but nothing too creepy. There’s this thing called sleep that I don’t get enough of and would prefer not to fill it with anything scary. My daughter’s five, I don’t know if she is quite ready yet for Hocus Pocus or would be interested in it but you better believe I will do my best to show her the ways of the Sanderson sisters. Hocus Pocus is really a great movie for any age(in my opinion). These fun Hocus Pocus party printables are perfect for a Halloween movie night with friends or kids. I made toppers and signs that you can get the free printables for below. I also made decorations that can be used for banners, centerpieces or hanging up. Get the printables below.
This is how I like my spiders! With glitter and you know, not real. I don’t have a fear of spiders but I would definitely jump a bit if I saw one. Halloween is the time of spider and all things creepy but I like to make my creepy things look more pretty than creepy. These diy glitter spider rings were really easy to make and transform basic spider rings into something shiny and pretty. These are good for kids and adult parties. You can also use them as table decorations or wine charms.
These monster eye Halloween Hershey Kisses are the easiest Halloween dessert for parties or to pass out to trick or treaters. You can just have a bowl of Halloween Hershey Kisses for guests. Since I always have googly eyes for crafts(I use an excessive amount of googly eyes) I though they would be perfect to put on some kind of candy. The bottom of the kisses are the perfect size for a googly eye. You can put these in the bowl of candy to pass out to trick or treaters to add a little more fun to the candy.
Thanksgiving is a great time to get together with all of your crazy family. That is why I made these funny free Thanksgiving printable wine labels and food tents. I think all families are a little crazy in their own special way. I say that as a term of endearment! I made some wine labels to bring to your crazy family because Thanksgiving is a time to drink wine with the family that makes you drink. I also made some fun food labels. It seems like everyone is into some food trend of eating gluten free, low fat, and tofurkey(I just like to say tofurkey). Thanksgiving is a time to put those eating habits aside. Eat all the fat, gluten, sugar and turkey that your heart desires. It is also a time to eat mom, grandma, dad, or grandpa’s famous food that you have been waiting all year to eat. No one makes food quite like family I know my mom and grandma’s food are my absolute favorite things to eat, it’s comfort food and I can’t wait to eat all of the food on Thanksgiving.
