Thanksgiving is only a few days away and I’m still looking for something for the kids to do to keep them busy before dinner. It can take a long time in a kids life to get Thanksgiving dinner started. I know my own kids get a little out of control waiting for dinner to start. I’m not sure if it’s the smell of all the yummy food or lack of attention that get them so crazy, but whatever it is they need something to keep them busy. So some last minute kids thanksgiving crafts are in order. I figured other peoples kids might need something to keep them busy too. So if you are as last minute as I am here are some ideas to keep your kids busy while the turkey is roasting.
