I can’t believe it’s almost Thanksgiving!  Rock’s in My Dryer asked what works for us. Here are some freebies that work for me!

Week Before Thanksgiving Planner


Leftover Labels

If you are hosting dinner with lots of food and guests. Use these labels to be extra fancy when you send food home!


Thanks & Giving Tree

I love this idea from Chocolate On My Cranium of creating trees with leaves declaring things you are thankful for and giving moments to be shared! It’s never too late to get started on this wonderful family project.

Thanks and Giving Trees PDF

On one leaf we write something you are grateful for and stick it on the Thanks Tree. On another leaf, write something you’ve done to serve or give to others and place it on the Giving Tree. Serving can be as simple as sharing a toy or writing a letter to Grandma.


Not a download, but I thought these were so cute!!

What you need:

7 Candy Corn
