Re: Kids' Thanksgiving Feast...help me plan it!

I think it would be fun to do a turkey, but the party is the Monday before Thanksgiving, so we'll all be eating plenty of turkey that week anyway. And maybe have everyone who comes bring a side, like the Pilgrims and Native Americans did that first Thanksgiving...?

I think for the little kids, I will do a handprint turkey craft. But I think it will be too simple for the older kids (6 and up). There will be probably at least 4 kids who could do something more involved. Any suggestions?
We are doing this too! I looked up the accurate take on what was probably at the first thanksgiving. So we are having parents bring: deli turkey (rolled up), cornbread (cornmush was probably served, but this is at a library room and no kitchen to keep things warm), dried bluberries/walnuts, squash. I had thought about bringing smoked salmon for adults, but we'll see.... Anyway, for the dessert for the kids I am making our annual Candy Turkeys and Candy Pilgrim Hats.

For the craft we are making construction paper pilgrim and indian hats.
