Thanksgiving Advent Calendar From Recycled Paper Bags - A Turkey Tree

We went to the store today and discovered, that Charlie Brown's little sister, Sally, was right. The Christmas decorations are already up, and there's not a turkey tree to be found. So, we decided to make our own, out of one of the grocery bags we came home with.

There aren't any turkeys on it yet of course, but we're working on them too - 26 of them to be exact.

Our plan is to pick a turkey each day in November, until Thanksgiving, write something we're thankful for on it, and tape it to the tree.

By Thanksgiving Day, we should have a tree full of thankful turkeys, and a new Thanksgiving tradition firmly in place.

It's great to be a homeschooler.

I love this idea! We're going to put up a turkey tree tomorrow and then I'll let the kids put up thankful turkeys any time they think of something to be thankful for (since we're already five days into the month). We need a cheerful project this month!
