Turkey Feather Place Cards and Yummy Centerpiece

In my Aunt Kathy's family, they've had this tradition for years. First, make a regular batch of rice krispie treats, but mold them into the bust of a turkey. We used spice drops for eyes and a wattle.

Next cut feathers out of construction paper or cardstock and write each family member's name on them. Tape a toothpick to the back of the feather. Place the feather on the plate where each person should sit.
Before or after your Thanksgiving Prayer, go around the table and have each family member say something they are especially grateful for and then have them place their feather in the turkey. I think the turkey we'll be poking this year will be covered in more than 30 feathers.

This has been a Winter Bazaar post. Check out Scribbit's place for more Winter Bazaar craft ideas.
