Happy Thanksgiving!

Carefree Crafts came in a padded envelope via USPS. I got the package in the mail over a week ago and just have not had a chance to post it.  It was addressed to S, so it made his day to get a package in the mail and not just an envelope.

When S and I opened the package he was so excited to see what crafts were included.  Here are the crafts included for this month. There were 6 Thanksgiving related crafts enclosed in the Happy Thanksgiving! kit.  It also gave a brief description of each craft and some fun Thanksgiving facts.

Thankful Tree-I love the idea of this tree.  At first I thought it was a family tree, and when I realized it was to put things you’re thankful for, I love it.  I cannot wait for S to do this tree.  I am curious to see what he is going to tell me when I ask him what he is thankful for.

Pilgrim Hat-I love the little turkey that goes on the hat.  I think S will play along and wear this on Thanksgiving day.

Gourd Turkey-When I told S he gets to make a turkey out of a gourd he was ecstatic.  Now if he will sit down long enough to make this that is the real question.

Update: S liked making this turkey gourd.  I was a little bummed that it wasn’t a real gourd.  It sure fooled me when it was in the package.  The gourd turned out well and S was very proud of his turkey.

Button Indian Corn-I love the idea of this.  I think we will hang this on the backdoor.  S loves buttons and says they look like money so he will have a great time gluing them on the corn.

Update: S had fun at the beginning putting down dots of glue and sticking buttons on them.  After about ten buttons S was done and I had to finish it myself.  It was really cute and I liked having it hang up for decoration.

I love all of the crafts we got this month and cannot wait to dive right into them.  If I could I would make them all myself but I do have to let S make them.  I will put pictures of the crafts when they are completed, along with how S liked them so check back to this posting to see the final products.

I was a little bummed when I saw the sneak preview on the internet of what we were getting this month.  I was really looking forward to making the wreath.  I thought it was adorable.  Here were the other two crafts that some of the other kits may have contained.

Disclosure: All thoughts and opinions are all of mine and a little of S!

Update:  We did not make the rest of the crafts from this month.  S kind of lost interest in Thanksgiving decorations and was getting more excited about Christmas.  I am going to save them for next Fall/Thanksgiving.
