Did your kids just get out of school for Thanksgiving break and they are already glued in front of the TV? If you want to get your kids stimulated and hands on, get them active by participating in a few Thanksgiving arts and crafts. Grab your kids and art supplies and get creative. After completing your Thanksgiving crafts display them around the house for guests to admire.
