Thanksgiving Activity Ideas
Kid Cookbook--Since food plays such an important role in this holiday, how about compiling a Kid Cookbook with your kids? Cut out holiday food pictures from magazines and paste them in a notebook. Let your kids plan their own menu and then let them prepare the easier dishes. You'll be surprised at how involved they'll become in the actual feast!
Holiday Hand Wreath--this is one of the most versatile crafts you can make with your kids. Use your kids' handprints cut out of autumn colored construction paper. Write "thankful" messages on each handprint and glue to a paper plate. We show you how!
Pinecone Turkey--here's a craft with several possiblities. Start by taking a walk with your kids and collecting some pinecones. Add a few leaves (real or paper), some glue....and you've got yourselves a cute turkey. Click here for details.
