'Lil mischief, family fun, and "Parties We Have Held"
Every year, between Halloween and Thanksgiving, we write down what we are thankful for. We usually post our notes on a Thankful tree. This year we will try something different—we will hide our notes and try to guess who wrote them.
Have your kids write what they are thankful for on little slips of paper. Each note will be folded up wrapped in a small square of tinfoil.
Use your favorite bread dough recipe or a prepared dough such as the whole wheat dough from Whole Foods. We are planning on trying this recipe on Thanksgiving day (http://www.beyondkimchee.com/pumpkin-dinner-rolls/)
Tip: Here’s an Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy version—Use canned crescent rolls to make an instant gratitude roll. You can skip the pumpkin shaping part and just slip your notes (in foil) in the dough as you wrap up the roll. Or use one triangle of dough to make a ball, insert the message, and shape as directed above.
Thanks to beyondkimchee.com for the idea.
