Thanksgiving Break

Welcome! New to ABC and 123?
Please check out our FAQ in the left sidebar.

Most of our reader in the United States are probably gearing up for Thanksgiving this Thursday. As we both celebrate this holiday too, we'll be taking a short break starting this Wednesday through Sunday.

We are looking forward to making our final meal preparations and spending time with our families. You can be sure that we'll be taking lots of pictures and sharing them on our personal blogs. We want to see how you all celebrate too!

Please plan to link up your Thanksgiving post on Monday November 30th.

If your country's Thanksgiving is on another day, like for all our Canadian friends, please add your post to our linky too. We always enjoy learning about how other cultures celebrate. Don't do Thanksgiving? Then please add a link to post in which you share special family time or a tradition.

To help you finish your party planning we wanted to share three great ideas from our readers that are all based on picture books featuring the iconic American Thanksgiving symbol, the turkey. We thought each of their crafts could be incorporated into your Thanksgiving meal as well!

Our Nifty Notebook read 10 Fat Turkeys and then made 10 handprint turkeys. "I am thankful for" and a family member's name is going to be written on each one. These would make fun cards to send in the mail or to place at each tablesetting on top of the plate for the big meal as place cards.

At A Mommy's Adventures they made turkey's all ready to go to the ball, based on the book The Turkey Ball by David Steinberg. A rafter of turkey's, would be a fun kid made centerpiece.
A Mommy Talks made this adorable turkey headband with her son after reading Run Turkey Run! by Diane Mayr. Wouldn't it be a cute craft for the kids to make and then wear while eating Thanksgiving dinner?


  1. Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!! Thank you for including our Turkey Project in this post :0)

  2. All crafts are great and just in time to make them with my girls.

  3. Who knows where to download XRumer 5.0 Palladium?
