Work It Wednesday - Nov. 19

Guess What? Today's Work It Wednesday project comes to you compliments of my kids.

I wanted to post something Thanksgiving related. Sure, I could show you a template for a Thanksgiving layout, or a pattern for a card. I could do that but really, wouldn't you rather make turkey plates instead?

Ok, so this idea isn't going to be for everyone. However, Thanksgiving is just a week away and you may be hosting a dinner. You may be having children come to your house. You may be looking for something that can entertain those kids while you put the finishing touches on dinner. If so, than this Work It Wednesday is for you.

As usually, Work It Wednesday is about using your stash and doing so in a way that maybe you haven't thought of before. So, pull out your scraps of paper, a button or two, and anything else you think the kids could use. And, then have them craft their own dinner plate.

If you were a kid, wouldn't you like to eat your meal on a specially made plate. Especially one made from scrapbook supplies that are probably usually off limits - I would! And, my kids did.

Try it - it's fun! Plus, it uses up lots of scraps and that is always a good thing.

Great idea. What child wouldn't look forward to taking something home with them after a Thanksgiving visit. Anyway, the plate can then be scanned and used as the background for a Thanksgiving scrapbbok page or a family picture from your Thanksgiving feast could be added to the center of the plate and hung on your child's wall to remind them of the fun families really can have together.
