Happy Thanksgiving! Grateful to you all for reading my blog and offering suggestions on how to improve it.
Head over to Caravan to download holiday art that you can print and in turn will entertain guests and Bambinos. Place mats, posters, coloring table cloths and more are available for download and all you have to do is send it to a local print shop or use your home printer.
We’ve found some simple and fun crafts to help you pass the time while the turkey cooks so the kids don’t make everyone crazy. You can find all of the crafts on our Pinterest page under the Thanksgiving board.
In case you have to work on Friday and need to occupy your kids, see the list of several places that have day-off camp.

Turkey Hunt– Growing up my Mom enjoyed making scavenger hunts for my brother and I. This is a perfect activity for my toddler (and any aged child) to do while the meal is finishing cooking.
Roll a Turkey– Fun activity for more than one child, they can compare their turkeys once they are finished. Even cuter to use as centerpieces on the table.
Gratitude Turkey– This requires a bit more prepping and clean-up but nonetheless an important craft to teach the importance of thankfulness. You can tweak the craft however you’d like and eliminate painting
Handprint Tablecloth– Love the idea of each year having Bambino(s) place their handprint on the table runner or table cloth and adding the year.
