It makes a village

I had never thought of Lincoln Logs as holiday decor until this year. You can build an amazing pilgrim settlement. The teepees are simply decorated with felt pens and twisted - giant recipe cards, with short bamboo skewers holding them up. E came up with the circle of logs near the teepee village. The foam pilgrims and turkeys are $1 crafts from JoAnn's fabrics and my darling Dad made me the wooden turkey many years ago. The boys have had a bit of fun playing with this set-up over the past week, including speeding a race car through the settlement and scattering turkeys everywhere. "Pray pardon me!" was all the pilgrims could say about it.

What a cute idea. I bet your boys had so much fun with that. What pilgrim village would be complete without a racecar terrorizing the locals!

This is awesome and it was really nice of the Pilgrims to not get too upset when the race car wrecked their village! ; )
