I always try to find ways to keep everyone entertained–especially the kids. I’m all about creating moments of memories, so this Thanksgiving was no different.
I purchased the Turkey Kit from Trader Joe’s. It’s the same concept as the gingerbread house but it’s just a Turkey. What’s great about this kit, is that there is no baking or cooking required and the pieces are already cut and ready for assembly.
After dinner was completed I had the all the kids age ranging from 11 to 3yrs old gather around. It was their task to put it together. Of course most of the gum balls and candy made it in there mouths not on the Turkey but it’s all in fun. It keeps the kids occupied for about 30minutes and they were happy to show off their final project. Be warned it looked nothing like the picture on box. But it was never intended for display but as a picture opportunity to tease them about in years to come. They were hard at work and actually being nice and sharing with one another. I loved every moment. The best part for them was eating the gingerbread cookie at the end.
