Thanksgiving


The centerpiece of contemporary Thanksgiving in the United States and Canada is a large meal, starring a large roasted turkey. All of the dishes in a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner are made from foods native to North America, the Pilgrims having received these foods from the Indians.

What You Need
  • Striped green and yellow squash
  • Yellow and green candles

How To Make It
  1. Break off the stalk from the gourds.
  2. Use an apple corer to make a bigger indentation in the top for a candle.
    Note: If the gourd is too hard to do this, get some florists' adhesive clay and use that to hold the candle in the top.
