Yesterday, we had a nice dinner with my brother and family since they will be gone on Thanksgiving. I have two nieces - Natasha is 9 and Karina is 6. I made pumpkins for them for Halloween and I wanted to have a Thanksgiving gift made for last night, but not overtly Thanksgiving since it feels a little early. I found these owls by Debbie. I don't often post a total CASE but these are absolutely charming! Debbie's came out a little taller and not quite so chubby - I think I stuffed them a little full of candy treats!!
After dinner, we played a rousing game of Left, Right, Center. I'd never played it with 6 and 9-year olds and it was SO fun!! It's a silly little game - perfect for young children, or older merry-makers after a few alcoholic beverages. I was having too much fun to get a camera, but the image of eight people leaning over the table yelling "left" or "right" - the most intense being the 6-year old - and the image of my SIL who lost her chips early and sat there wondering what was so fun - and then almost winning - it was a great night!
Here's a link to the box and the scallop die. I also used miscellaneous circle punch, hole punch and banner punch (snipped off to make the nose), and a retired ribbon.
