Thanksgiving Crafts: Turkey Day Awards

Turkey Day Awards

Total Time Needed: 1-2 Hours

With the whole family together, Thanksgiving is the perfect time to look back and celebrate the year's achievements. Whether it's an after-dinner gathering in the living room or a powwow around a backyard fireplace, it's nice to do this with a bit of ceremony - and these commemorative scrolls add a special flourish to the festivities.

Ask each family member for their nominations - and be sure everyone gets an award, whether it's "best haircut of the year" or "toughest survivor of a home renovation."
