Posted November 15, 2017 by Julie in Parenting, TopPosts / 3 Comments

Thanksgiving is a day to get together with family, share a wonderful meal, and talk about gratitude. But little kids may want some more activities to do since they won’t be sitting around and eating all day like us (lazy) grown-ups. So here I have collected a few fun activities kids can do to partake in the celebration without getting bored.
