PAPER GOLF GAME
This is a good game to play after the parade, and before your dinner on Thanksgiving. The simplicity of this game is its charm. Since everyone has the same handicap--eyes closed--they can be competitive with the likes of Tiger Woods.
WHAT YOU NEED:
HOW TO PLAY:
1. Create a "fairway" on a standard-sized piece of paper - a shape that is the boundary for the tee-off area and hole. Draw a small circle (the hole) at one end of the fairway.
2. Place the marker point down at the tee (the other end of the fairway), close your eyes and try to draw a line to the hole. Lift your marker and open your eyes. That's your "shot." (If you strayed outside the boundaries, add a stroke.) The next player then tees off on the same sheet.
3. As with actual golf, the player farthest from the hole shoots first, and your score is the number of shots it takes you to reach the cup. Play nine holes or even 18 like the pros.

|WHAT YOU WILL NEED:|
Brown paper bags
Cardboard (cereal box)
Colored construction paper
2 small white pom-poms
Black permanent marker
|1. From the brown paper bags, cut a circle 3 1/2 inches in diameter for the turkey's head. Next, cut a 3-inch-wide band to fit around your child's head. |
2. From the cardboard, cut a strip 5 by 1 1/2 inches to use for a neck. Fold it three times accordion style, then glue one end to the back of the paper circle.
3. For a beak, fold yellow construction paper and cut out a small double triangle (1 1/2 inches along the fold). Cut a rounded L from red paper for the turkey's wattle.
4. To create eyes, draw a black circle on each pom-pom with the marker. Glue the eyes, wattle and one side of the beak to the head. Let them dry. Then, glue the loose end of the neck to the center of the headband.
5. Now, wrap the headband around your child's head; mark where the ends overlap, then remove the band and glue the ends. Finally, glue on construction paper feathers and wings.
This NFL season, you can expect a high number of interceptions when you pass these individual-size meatball sandwiches during halftime festivities.
|Mini Football Subs|
1. To make a batch, first prepare your favorite meatball recipe, shaping each meatball into a mini football before cooking. Once they're cooked, add the meatballs to a skillet of spaghetti sauce and warm them through.
2. For each sub, cut a V-shaped notch from the top of an individual-size roll, place a meatball in the roll, and top with cheese shred laces. Finally, get the sandwiches in a huddle on a cookie sheet and place them in a warm oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese.
