I love being around kids!
The things they do and say bust me up
and the way they get excited about the
Holidays is definitely something well
My Thanksgiving job is usually
entertaining the kids.
I get as excited as they do . . . so it’s the
perfect thing for me to be in charge of .
One year I was in charge of the pies.
I was soooo excited!
I made 15 pies and loaded them in the car to
take to Henefer.
ON the way . . . we noticed a family that
had been stranded because of car problems.
I told Dave to stop so that I could see what
we could do to help.
We gathered all the money we could find
and left them with a pie.
I thought they would love a little
bit of pumpkin pie while they waited for
their tow truck.
When it came time to present the pies
to my family . . . I was OOBER excited.
They looked awesome!!!
My Dave took the first bite and looked at
me with the most puzzled look on his face.
He asked me what type of pie I had made.
“PUMPKIN,” of course!
I took a bite to see why he would ask.
“GOOD NIGHT AND LITTLE FISHES!”
It tasted like squash!
I had forgotten the sugar!
I immediately thought of the cute little
family on the side of the road.
They probably thought I was trying
to poison them!
Bless their hearts . . . I felt soooo bad!
So long story short . . .
I am now permanently in charge of
Woot . . . Woot!
The kids just think it’s because I’m the
FuN Aunt, I’m sure!
I am still allowed to make
cream pies or fruit pies so that’s good!
The littles always love to hunt for things,
So a TURKEY HUNT is a must at
Our house every year!
Here’s what the Turkey’s look like:
To Make the Game:
Print the Turkey’s
Laminate and Cut Them Out
Attach the Turkey’s to Tongue Depressors
And You’re Ready to Go!
Now all you have to do is hide them in the yard
And turn the kids loose!
Each of the Turkey’s have different
colored tail feathers.
I did that so that we could do prizes
at the end of the game.
I put the prizes into cellophane bags.
I add a turkey tag
(which is included in the PDF)
to each bag.
The kids can grab the match to their
I use the card below to keep track
Of the Turkey’s that have been found.
This is laminated and marked with a
Dry erase marker!
The kids love to see what turkey’s have been
Found, and what turkey’s are left!
Super Fun . . . Super Easy . . . and a great
Way to keep the kids entertained!
