Thanksgiving freebies & cookies

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!

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:

  1. HA Ha that is a great idea! They look cute and hopefully taste just as good as they look.

    Im going to make those for a mid day snack and for dessert personalized turkey cookies. Can’t wait!

  2. What fantastic ideas!
    I sent the link to your blog to my sister-in-law’s sister. She is looking for treats to make for her daughter’s preschool class. The turkeys would be perfect. KV

  3. Oh….my….gosh! Those candy turkeys are the cutest things I’ve ever seen! I must take the stuff with me on our Turkey Day trip! Thanks!

  4. These are great!!! We are on the same page…few different ingredients, but same idea! Love the pics…I’ve posted a video tutorial to go with the tasty turkeys at my site.

  5. I love the leftover labels! Thanks so much for sharing the downloads.

  6. These are fantastic, I’ll be linking!

  7. Such neat ideas, Amy! I’m passing this post on to my older girls who are making BIG plans for our Thanksgiving 🙂

  9. Again, so cute! I love the thanksgiving tree…I am going to have to try and copy that!

  10. Thanks for the planner download. Normally I just make a list, but I’m excited to have a fun way to lay everything out! The cookies are really cute too! They will be making an appearance at my Thanksgiving feast for sure!

    Also, I found your website via Bloggy Giveaways! I used to work at Grace in the children’s ministry with Monte. And get this: my husband works at Trinity Industries, and that annual report spent a lot of time on my coffee table. Small World! Love your site!

  11. Those little turkeys are so darn cute!

  12. You find the absolute neatest things Amy! I actually think I might be able to handle that turkey…the kids and their cousins will love it.


    P.S. Your box is addressed, labeled and ready to go to the PO today. Hopefully it will arrive safe and sound. 🙂
