Make: Mayflower Mercy Ship and Giveaway!!

Today I'm posting over at one of my favorite sites, Women Living Well about how to make this yummy decoration. My little boy and I have been calling it our Mayflower Mercies Ship, and our family has been filling it with notes of thankfulness all week. It has created such a feeling of gratitude in our house, and was fun (and tasty!) to create!


I also used the following book to teach Landon about the first Thanksgiving, and the pilgrims journey on the Mayflower. It's a GREAT resource! He likes it so much I think we're going to still be reading about Thanksgiving in February! :) If you'd like to be entered to win a copy of this book, simply leave a comment below! In hopes to get the book to the winner as quickly as possible (before Thanksgiving?!?), this Giveaway is for today only. Name will be announced Saturday morning. Good luck!



Happy Thanksgiving, friends!!

PS. If you participated in Operation Christmas Child this year, be sure to leave a comment under this recent post too! We're giving away a Christmas Veggie Tales DVD about the joy of giving to others. :)

How fun! My purpose this holiday season is to have FUN and not to busy myself with things that keep me away from my family. Thanks for the great idea! Yes, I love giveaways too! :)

Bev said...

I think it would be such fun to have a family member wear the headdress each year, maybe by vote, or drawing, or who is the youngest or oldest present. could be a fun tradition! Don't use my name for the drawing, just wanted to comment.
