Thanksgiving Playscape

With Buddy being three this Thanksgiving season, I have really been trying to help him understand the story of Thanksgiving. I was visiting Rhythm of the Home the other day and I saw this cute idea for a Thanksgiving inspired wooden playset.

I already had some wooden peg dolls and acrylic paints on hand, so Buddy and I started our little project. Once we got started, the ideas just kept coming as we created the playscape.

(I found the paper towel tube canoe idea at Crafty Crow.)
We had all of the materials on hand except the wooden pot (candle holder) and little bowls. I purchased and dyed the playsilks this summer. They have come in handy in many creative play scenarios.
It was such a fun project for Buddy and I to do together. He has been playing with it non-stop. Little Man loves it too. Especially the fish!
Making peg doll playscapes are extremely easy. I am planning to make one of these sets for each of the boys for Christmas. If making these types of sets isn’t your thing, there are great stores on Etsy that sell similar playscapes. One of my favorites to browse is The Enchanted Cupboard.
Well, I am getting ready to go pick up my pre-registration packet for the 5K tomorrow. So excited! Hope you are having a great Thanksgiving Eve.
