How to: Make a Table Top Parade Centerpiece

 The floats from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade were fun to design for my daughter and her brother on a long ago Thanksgiving. A few of their prized possessions plus paper plates, markers, disposable cups, lots of tape and glue, and a scissors is all that was required. You could construct the street from construction paper or a fabric runner.
You could include a Thanksgiving Turkey.
From there you can become as creative as you wish. I think Santa Claus should be added to the end for a little excitement. Despite the fact that it is not very sturdy, repairs are a snap with tape!
It's a cool table decoration for Thanksgiving.
 A few helium balloons or a Pilgrim or two would really set it off well. 
Better get busy, Thanksgiving is next week!
