Ideas for the Thanksgiving Table
1. Small Indian corn, gourd pumpkins and squashes are great reminders of the fall holidays. These pieces could be put into a small basket and displayed in the home or even on the buffet table.
2. The week before Thanksgiving, set out a table runner and markers in a central location in the house. Encourage everyone to write a fond memory or sentiment from the current year on the runner, then display the runner at the big feast. Store it until the next year when everyone can add a new round of things for which to be thankful.
3. Making corn-print place mats is a great activity for kids.
Break or cutan uncooked ear of corn into 2-1/2-inch lengths.
Firmly attach plastic corn-cob holders to the ends.
Pour a few shades of fabric paint onto paper plates.
Roll the corn in the paint, then across a cloth place mat.
Repeat, overlapping patterns and hues.
Then set the paint according to the directions.
