Thanksgiving may be weeks away, but that doesn’t mean your little pilgrim can’t begin to create some holiday crafts.  We found this cute idea where you use rocks from your garden as a Thanksgiving name card craft – get a head start (we know how choosing seats at the dinner table can be daunting during the holidays!).

Plymouth Rocks
Instead of using paper place cards, coat stones in brightly colored tempera paint and glue on alphabet pasta letters.

Items Needed:

  • number of rocks to equal your # of family members and/or guests
  • colored tempera paint (found at your local hardware store)
  • bag of pasta letters (at your local grocery store)
  • Elmer’s Glue


  1. Find rocks in your garden (however many are in your family or your party)
  2. Wash the rocks and dry them thoroughly
  3. Paint the entire rock the color of your choice with tempera paint
  4. Glue on alphabet letters to spell out your family names (i.e. dad, mom, Charly, Ella, etc.)
  5. Allow to dry on newspaper inside the house
  6. Set the table! 🙂
