Disclosure: I received the following for review. All opinions are my own.
I just love the holidays and Thanksgiving is next week! This means a few extra days off of work and enjoying the time with family and friends. The all day feast is most enjoyable and it just gets better as the kids are older. Since the weather is fantastic here in Southern California, I was excited for the kids to be able to craft outside on their Little Tikes Easy Store™ Jr. Play Table with Umbrella.
The Easy Store Jr. Play Table with Umbrella took mere minutes to set up (no tools needed) and after gathering some supplies, we headed outdoors to the patio. What's great about Little Tikes outdoor toys is that they are easily washed down with a hose if dust or rain gets on it. We haven't had fading issues with any of our Little Tikes products yet! This kid size picnic table is just the right height for my 3 year old and 5 year old. There's even room for their friends when they come over to play. The umbrella is a great option for when the sun comes out to shield your little ones. This can also be used indoors if you live in a snowy/colder climate. When play or meal time is over, you can quickly fold it and stash to the side.
The kids have been coming home from school with various Thanksgiving themed crafts so I thought it would be fun to recreate one that I did when I was a little gal - the Paper Headdress!
- Construction Paper: brown, red, yellow, orange
- Crayons and/or Markers
1. Draw, color, decorate on the brown paper. Cut into 1.5 to 2 inch strips. Measure around your child's head and staple.
2. Cut leaf shapes in various sizes with the red, orange and yellow paper.
3. Place small straight cuts around the edge of the feathers to create a ruffled look. Arrange approximately 4 leaves together and staple.
4. Staple onto front of the headdress and ready to wear! If you aren't a fan of staples, you can opt to glue together.
How do you get your children into the Thanksgiving spirit? What are some of their favorite crafts?
