Gobble, gobble, gobble! Thanksgiving is coming up in just two short weeks! I don't know if the Thanksgiving meal or all of the fun crafts is what I like more. Thankfully I don't have choose and get to indulge in both!


I think that I love Thanksgiving so much is because it gives me a chance to slow and down and think about all of the things that I am grateful for. I love doing this gratitude project with my kids. It is fun to to hear what they are grateful for.

Did you ever make Cootie Catchers as a kid? I did! Cootie Catchers are also known as fortune tellers. This is a simple project for kids to learn basic origami skills.
