Countdowns Number 6, 5 & 4

Pinecone Turkey
 #6- Make that table FUN. The kids are going to be home anyway, so put them to work making these cute name place holders to decorate your table. Cut feathers out of paper or tissue paper; glue your felt turkey face to a pine cone--make the kids hunt for these around the yard to get that extra energy out, and viola, place cards for your table.

Depending on your taste and style you can make easy decor for any home. Gather leaves and twigs from the yard to use in vases. Or, you can buy pre-made decor at craft stores; don't forget your coupons. You can also use wooded 2 x 4s and cut them into different sizes, then spray glue different images or letters on them for a new centerpiece.

#5- Visit the library and get a new book about our country's history, or a story book about Thanksgiving. There are a million out there. One of my favorites is P is for Pilgrims: A Thanksgiving Alphabet by Carol Crane and America : A Patriotic Primer by Lynne Cheney.

#4- Prioritize your Shopping List. Ok, so if your list isn't even written yet, you have permission to stop reading and get it together. You know things are going fast. Check online this week to see your store's Black Friday deals. Don't forget the Monday after Thanksgiving is Cyber Monday and there will be online deals galore. Also, please use your ebates account when shopping online. It will save you money so you can pay the Visa bill after the holidays.

Stay Tuned....
