Family Fun for Thanksgiving Day

We are part of the Amazon Associates program.

Thanksgiving Day is wonderful.  Family, food, friends… and usually a lot of people crammed into one home inside. all. day. Tough for kids, right?

Sometimes Thanksgiving can actually be a little hard because, how do you keep your kids/ nieces/ nephews/ everyone happy while hanging out waiting for the delicious meal? How can you keep everyone from just staring at the parade or football on the TV? (I do love the parade and football, by the way, so keep it on in the background!) 

Well, we have some family fun ideas to pass the time as the turkey cooks.  These are creative, funny, and heartwarming ways to be together as a family.  And that’s what Thanksgiving is really about anyway, right? Being together as a family!
