I LOVE Thanksgiving. The food, the family, even the football. I love the smells of Thanksgiving and the togetherness. I love the time spend reflecting on all the things in our life to be thankful for. It’s one of my favorite days of the year.
I don’t know about ya’ll, but one of the challenges I face with holiday celebrations is keeping the kiddos entertained long enough to actually get food on the table. Even with loads of family around, it still seems my little girls get bored and mischievous and at some point attempt to stick some part of their little bodies into the oven or the pumpkin pie or the mashed potatoes. So in order to keep my kids in one piece and my mashed potatoes finger free…it’s important that we have plenty of time occupying activities. I figured, if mama is gonna be making a turkey…maybe the girls should make some “turkeys”of their own.
I have compiled a list of turkey crafts and food ideas that would be fun for the kids on thanksgiving day!!
The list includes lots of great ideas. My favorites include those that use hand and footprints as well as those that make use of some of that left over Halloween candy. Super fun…
