THANKFUL TURKEY ok ok I know it’s Halloween today (HAPPY HALLOWEEN!) and I’m jum…

🦃THANKFUL TURKEY🦃 ok ok I know it’s Halloween today (HAPPY HALLOWEEN!🎃) and I’m jumping ahead slightly buuuuut it’s with good cause 😉 THIS 👆🏻 is what the kids and I will be starting tomorrow (November 1) as our big Thanksgiving project – this is our THIRD YEAR doing it✨ I wanted to share in case you want to start with us tomorrow too 😍 This is such a joy to do each year and such a great way for the kids to visualize and reflect on how much they have to be thankful for 🙌🏻 Here’s the 4-1-1: I make a cute little turkey body from a grocery store bag and hang it on our wall 🍂 Each day, we talk about the word “thankful” and say one thing we are thankful for 🐿 I write these on a colorful feather I had cut from construction paper (I cut a ton all at once) 🌾 We tape these to the turkey/wall and watch him grow little by little 🍄 The first year we did this, Kate was about Matt’s age (24 months) & she’d mostly just name things she saw in the room 😂 So I’m really looking forward to what Matt will say each day on his feathers ⭐️ Also, each year I like to play a game with myself called “how many days will go by BEFORE they remember to be thankful for me” 🤣 Last year, it only took a week, and I came after three neighbors and the grocery store clerk 😂 So that’s what we will start tomorrow – building our thankful turkey one feather at a time (times THREE kids each day) and he will be one plump little bird come Thanksgiving day 🦃 Happy Halloween friends!! So excited to see all the kids in their costumes tonight 🍬🎃👻☠️🍫
