Thanksgiving Craft Ideas and Fun Activities for Kids

Thanksgiving Day is a wonderful time for spending time and reconnecting with family and friends – especially when those loved ones don't live close to you. However, with a big menu comes a lot of prep time in the kitchen for us grown-ups, which tends to mean a LOT of wait time for the kids. I love to come prepared with craft activities for the little ones at our table – do you? This week's roundup features some ideas that can be made day of or presented as a way to make dinnertime seem not so far away.
