Thanksgiving is more than just a Native American tradition. It’s a time to show your appreciation to God for the many blessings you have received all throughout the year. Moreover, it’s a perfect time to gather all your loved ones for a simple and intimate dinner. It also starts the beginning of the holidays. It’s thus not surprising that everybody is in their festive moods come the third Thursday of November. You can also liven up your Thanksgiving spirit with a number of Thanksgiving-related project ideas using your color laser printer. Here are several fabulous ideas for you:
1. Place Cards
You can add your own creative touch in your table during Thanksgiving dinner. Rather than placing your usual table mats, why don’t you create your own version of place cards instead? If there aren’t too many guests invited, you can ask for their individual pictures, have them printed in your Epson or Canon printer, and use them as their personal place cards. You can even add your personal Thanksgiving message to each one of them. Definitely, all of your friends and family members will have the surprise of their lives seeing their faces at the dinner table.
2. Self-made Poetry
Do you have a knack in poetry, or are you inspired by the holidays to write your own poem? Thanksgiving is the perfect time to showcase your talent while letting your loved ones know the importance of the occasion. Besides, it’s almost the end of the year. It’s high time that you tell them how much you appreciate the good times you’ve spent the entire year through verses. You can write your poem in a word processor, add some designs that will fit into your chosen theme, and then print out the copies with your Canon or Epson printer later to all those who listened to you intently.
3. Mazes and Word Searches
Do you need to brush up your knowledge in Thanksgiving? Or would you like to have your friends and family members busy themselves while you’re still cooking your dinner? There are numerous Thanksgiving-related word searches and mazes that you can download from the Internet. If you have the gift of Gab, you can always come up with your own.
4. Native Americans Paper Dolls
What better way to teach your kids about the significance of Thanksgiving in American history than creating your own Native American paper dolls. Patterns are widely available in the Internet, and all you need to do is to print them in a color laser printer. You can even have the freedom to choose Native American costumes.
You just have to look for a sturdier paper when you’re going to print them so you can attach them to your future paper dolls. While you’re in the middle of the project, you can then add insights about the holiday. Surely, your children will have more reason to look forward the next Thanksgiving Day
