Goggle-Eyed Turkey Candy Box - filled with candyHere is a fun activity that you and the kids can do together for Thanksgiving. Turn a small plastic flower pot into a turkey candy box. Make one, or make a few to share the season's bounty with your neighbors. Older kids will be able to manage on their own, but the littlies might need some assistance from mom.
