Thanksgiving Cornucopia Craft

How cute is this!  I saw this cornucopia craft in the current issue of Family Fun magazine yesterday while I was waiting for my son at the Ortho's office.  Of course, I just had to share it with you. =0) Go HERE for the complete instructions and printable templates.

This would be a great craft to do with your kids (you can hand sew or glue the pieces together). There are so many extra possibilities with this craft. 

Here are a few of my ideas:

Write down what you are thankful for and attach it to a vegetable. Then on Thanksgiving take turns pulling out the vegetables and reading what everyone is thankful for (save the "thankfuls" for the years to come). 

This would also be a great learning tool for younger kids.  You could write a number on each vegetable and do math or counting games. 

Not ready for math or counting games?  How about learning colors and words for objects?

Do you have any great ideas to make this more than just a craft?  I would love to hear them. =0)
