Halloween is over, so we can officially start talking about Christmas, right? Just kidding… we’ll stop for a brief moment to talk about Thanksgiving. If only for a moment 🙂
If your Thanksgiving gatherings are anything like mine, you end with a metric ton of food, football on the television, and a lot of bored kids as the day drags on. This week, we’ve found some fun and kid friendly crafts, activities, and snack ideas to keep the kiddos entertained while everyone else is in a Turkey Coma.
