For Thanksgiving, it helps to have some activities to keep the kids occupied while you get cooking. The pilgrim hats are easy to make and look great at the kids' table. You can fill them with markers, crayons, scissors and get kids ready for more activities.
Thankful tree: This is a great thing for the whole family. You can print leaves on this template, have the kids help you cut them out and write all the things they're thankful for. Hang with ribbon on branches, for a decorative reminder of why we celebrate Thanksgiving.
Turkey hand cutouts. It's a different twist on that classic hand-traced turkey kids do every year. Requires empty paper towel rolls, google eyes an construction paper. Another easy activity for kids to do.
