Search for something related to Thanksgiving or fall...

  • "fall leaves"
  • "pumpkin"
  • "turkey"

Find a picture (cartoon/clip art type of picture) and insert it.

... reduce the size of the picture until everything fits on one page.

Side Picture

  1. Click anywhere on the bottom part of the page and go to INSERT>Online Picture again

Adjust the size of the box so it fits on 3 lines like this, and position it on the page like this (you may have to move your side picture a little)...

Then right-click on the border of the box and set Outline to none.

When you click off the text box, you have this...

You're done. Save it and zoom out to 70%. Come and get it checked off.
