Kids can feel left out during the craziness of Thanksgiving, especially if you’re hosting. Add to that the days they get off from school while you’re preparing and it’s even worse.

I have 2 kiddos in school right now and one still at home which means that school breaks totally jack up our routine. That’s why I make a point to enjoy fun crafts like these with the kiddos during this time of year.

This lets us connect and create together when they have my undivided attention. This makes it easier for them when I’m busy cooking in the kitchen or out Black Friday shopping during the Thanksgiving holiday.

Have your kids make 4 of them and glue them into a ‘box’ with hot glue for a super cute centerpiece for the kid’s table this Thanksgiving. Kids will love having their artwork displayed as part of the big dinner and you can totally put a cup of crayons in the middle for easy entertainment while they wait to eat.
