Thanksgiving is one of the many holidays to look forward to. After creating this Thanksgiving Countdown Calendar, you can patiently countdown the days until juicy turkey, lumpy mashed potatoes and sweet cranberries. This DIY calendar isn't like any normal calendar... Because it's in the shape of turkey (how appropriate)! Your kids will love making this craft and waking up every morning to see that there's a day less than before till the joyous holiday. Not only is this a great way to keep track of what day it is, but this project makes the perfect Thanksgiving home decor piece! 

From the blogger: "Thanksgiving is a great time of year to slow down and think of all the many things we have to be grateful for. Often hard to do when we are inundated with holiday offerings as early as summertime! Gather your family together and jot down what you are most grateful for (often humorous with young kids in the house). Fill this DIY Thanksgiving turkey calendar and begin the countdown to the yummiest day all year!"
