For the last couple of years, my husband and I have talked about having a Friendsgiving, but it wasn’t until this year that I made it happen.
Since it’s Thanksgiving break, lots of our friends are out of school and work, so we settled on a day during the week to have all the mommies and kids over for snacks and crafts.
We made paper plate turkeys by:
1) coloring the paper plates brown
2) cutting out feathers
3) gluing the feathers to the back of the paper plate
4) hot gluing googly eyes
5) hot gluing a stick (if needed/ wanted)
Then, the kids played outside on the playground/ with Legos, etc.
We had lunch of Chick-fil-a nuggets (because all kids eat those, right?!), broccoli cheese casserole, candied yams, pumpkin pie, veggie straws, Tee Pees, Corn Pops and more. It was potluck and all the moms brought a dish to share.
Then, I had my hubby put a table outside for painting. We used square Legos as stamps to make Indian corn.
All-in-all, I’d say it was a successful day and I hope to make it an annual tradition for our friends (and maybe include the dads next year)
Have you ever hosted a Friendsgiving? What did you do for it?
