Need something for the kids to do while the turkey is in the oven? Here are some ideas.
Before the turkey is in the oven, the dining room table is set and your family is on their way, making Thanksgiving and fall crafts is a fun way to pass the time. Thanksgiving crafts will keep little hands busy and provide family-friendly fall decor to your home. Try these crafts to add fun to your Thanksgiving table. WHAT YOU NEED: WHAT YOU DO: 1. Take a small amount of frosting (we used chocolate frosting) and place it on one of the Oreos, where the tail feathers will go. 2.

Take one miniature Reese's Peanut Butter Cup (unwrapped) and cut off a small chunk (see photo). Add a small amount of frosting to it and stick it to the Oreo…

Members of the Wyandotte Marching Chiefs practiced alongside Kid Rock on Wednesday in preparation for their national TV appearance during halftime of the Thanksgiving Day Detroit Lions game at Ford Field. The Roosevelt High School marching band is the only marching band picked to perform during the halftime show, which will feature about 700 total performers. Of those, 126 will be Downriver high school students. Roosevelt has a crew of 108 students, with an additional 18 students coming from the Trenton High School marching band.

Last year, we tackled cooking a whole turkey with stuffing for the first time. So if you're nervous about making your first turkey, too, just follow Ethan's simple instructions. Here's what you'll need: Here's how to make it: Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Remove the turkey from the wrapper, noting the weight. Remove the neck and giblets from inside the turkey, and remove the plastic leg ties. In a large bowl, combine the stuffing mix (Ethan used a bag of pre-seasoned vegan stuffing from Whole Foods) with the egg; add enough water to make it mushy and stir until evenly moist.
