10 Tips for Turkey Day Leftovers

#10 Entertain your family for hours with hard-roll hockey–perfect for ice rink or kitchen floor.

Help your kid wow them at the science fair with a towering mashed
potato volcano a la Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Gravy lava

#8 Went to bed early and forgot to cover the turkey? Carve the dried chunks into whimsical ornaments.

#7 Puree table scraps for Thanksgiving-collage smoothies. (Freeze for yummy health drinks to last through New Year’s.)

Explore the versatile candied yam: scoop onto graham crackers for yammy
s’mores, add figurines to create your own alpine wonderland, or harden
into a cute lumpy serving tray.

#5 Recycle extra turkey
stuffing¿stuff it into decorative “dressing” pillows to spice up your
sofa for the holidays. (Keep refrigerated until ready to use.)

Mold cranberry sauce over a basketball and let it congeal and take
shape (seven or more days for best results) Voila! A tasty winter hat.

Craft artisan jewelry, turkey-skin bracelets (some assembly required),
green bean earrings (dangles are all the rage), or a lucky wishbone
hair clip (dry first).

#2 Invigorate your stove-weary, food-stuffed skin with a lime-fresh or strawberry-zinger gelatin face mask.

#1 Encourage your guests to join in a pumpkin pie eating contest. First prize: all the leftovers!
