Everyone looks forward to Thanksgiving, but sitting through a long meal can be a challenge for kids. A specially decorated kids' table will ensure a pleasant gathering for everyone.
Corn husks are a light but sturdy crafting material perfect for making the head and feathers of these turkeys. Use Hubbard squash (or any other winter squash or gourd) for the turkeys' bodies.
A feather dresses up a simple twill-tape napkin wrap, which doubles as a headdress during -- and after -- the feast.
Cut a small hole in the center of a 27-inch-long piece of twill tape. Insert a clean feather (available from florists' shops) in the hole, and stitch to secure. Center the feather on the front of a folded napkin, and tie the tape loosely at the napkin's back.
