This site is incredible to me. I love cake and love the idea of cake pops.
Look how cute these turkeys are!

I thought this was a simple and cute Autumn place mat. The site has a tutorial as well. http://twinmommyproductions.blogspot.com/2007/10/patchwork-placemat-tutorial.html And look at this cute place setting card...http://www.shelleyhopps.com/mocha_memories/2008/10/pick-your-placecard.html
I also had to include some of the fun things found off of Family Fun.com. This site has so many cute ideas for kids and so many other things that parents can enjoy. Here are just a few that I saw and some that I have actually done in the past. I've done both this cornucopia and the Pilgrim hats for place settings for my family. They actually turned out pretty cute. I even found a way to curl the end of the sugar cone with hot steam. I looked for "Runt's" (I think that's what they are called) candy to fill the cones with , but no one had heard of them in Florida.

I am always looking for ideas to make Thanksgiving more meaningful. It seems it often gets overlooked. This idea was a creative one that will be fun as the kids get even older, but I think I might even try to implement it this year....we'll see. Here's the link http://shauna-naner.blogspot.com/2007/11/thanksgiving-family-tradition.html
Check out SugarDoodle.net random page...she has got some great thanksgiving ideas listed.
Some other fun ideas that I have collected are:
-Placing thank you notes to your family under the dinner plate for them to find before or after dinner
-Lay 5 grains of corn (or candy corn) on dinner plate and have everyone share thankful thoughts for each piece of corn.
-Make a Tablecloth that everyone can write something they are thankful for each year. Obviously reuse it each year. :)
-Do a thankful activity each day as you countdown to Thanksgiving (see post below) :)
-Kandi Chapman shared this idea on SugarDoodle.net : "We make a rice crispy shaped turkey and cut feathers out of construction paper taped to a toothpick - one for each person with their name on it. Then we go around the table and say what we're thankful for as we put our feather on the turkey. You could do this and afterward sing thanksgiving songs while you cut up the turkey for a treat. "
I finished my Thanksgiving Countdown Calender that I have been working on since last year...(well I started it last year, stopped and just picked it up again). I wanted to post a picture, but my computer is out of space and I haven't been able to download any photo's....so sad. So I will have to do that when I get things worked out, but I found a site where the girl had also copied the pottery barn countdown (hers is darling, mine is extremely simple) she created 30 thankful activities that I thought were fun so I wanted to include them here for reference. Here is her link http://angbrimwil.blogspot.com/2007/11/thankful-activities-for-calendar.html. So fun!
