Keep 'em busy

I have always been the type of person who loves the holidays. I love the decorations and preparations, and I love all of the little activities you get to do in the lead-up to a holiday. 

Not surprisingly, that excitement has only grown now that I have toddlers to introduce to the holiday fun — especially at Thanksgiving. Turkey Day is the perfect excuse to use crafts to spur conversations about gratitude and thankfulness. 

My memories of Thanksgiving when I was a child involve my mom cooking a ton, while my siblings and I worked on a craft project. Giving kids a project on Thanksgiving morning can keep them occupied while you get other tasks accomplished — such as perfecting your stuffing recipe or trying not to burn the pie!
