30 Days of Thankfulness-Day 14 & 15

I'm a day late and a dollar short...isn't that how the old saying goes?

Anyway, yesterday the kiddos made a little something to let their teachers know that we are thankful for them. I had a fun little idea that popped into my head as we checked out at our local bulk foods market. They always have some yummy treat sitting there by the cash register and yesterday it just happened to be the mini buckeyes. They were packaged in a plastic cone shaped bag. I envisioned that we could turn them upside down and make them into turkeys.

Here's how they turned out...

Cute, huh?
One of the things that I love most about doing this kind of activity with my children is that they all create something unique. Just like their personalities, each turkey was a little different than the others.

Our act of kindness idea today came to us again courtesy of Cindy- over at Crayon Wishes and Popsicle Dreams. We will be treating someone to a free load of laundry at the laundrymat! I just happened to have one of my "freebie" samples of laundry detergent and some quarters available.

What fun! Thanks again so much, Cindy, for the idea!


  1. LOVE the turkeys - those are so cute! And what a great idea to bless someone with a free load of laundry. The thing I disliked most about apartment living was the need for lots of quarters to do laundry - reminds me to be extra thankful for my laundry room today. :)

  2. Those turkeys are so adorable, what a wonderful idea! I've enjoyed reading everyone's acts of kindness--there really is no end to what we could do to show God's love to others :)
