The Day After Thanksgiving November 22 2020

It’s early yet but we are gearing up for “Buy Nothing Friday” here at Waldorf Publications. Come along with us to turn “Black Friday” into “Light and Laughter Friday” with hearts and hands working on great crafting ideas together.  You don’t need to buy anything on the Friday after Thanksgiving; instead, stay at home (we are all getting pretty good at that by now!!) and gather the family and friends in your home for a day of make-believe and making things. Turn off your phones and computers and stimulate those magnificent brains with hand activities extraordinaire!

We are now on year seven (a magic number, after all) of our Buy Nothing Friday tradition. Here are some hints of things you can gather together for the special day — hunting and gathering everyday items such as:

  • Yarn
  • Applesauce
  • Kite paper or kraft paper
  • All-purpose glue
  • Cinnamon
  • Applesauce
  • Ribbon, raffia, or twine
  • Pinecones
  • Wool
  • Buttons, bells, wooden beads

So many ways to be really ready for BUY NOTHING FRIDAY!
