Have a Kid-Friendly Thanksgiving
Whether you travel away from home, or you're the one who hosts family and friends for the yearly Thanksgiving meal, think about keeping your kids safe and occupied during the holiday. The stove may be putting out delicious smells and tastes, but be sure you've got an eye on it while your kids and those of your guests wait for the meal to be ready.Keep them occupied by giving them lots of Thanksgiving-related crafts. It's easy for older children to cut strips of paper and weave them into placemats. Little ones can trace their hands and make "turkeys." Consider using their creations for the table centerpiece. Older children will appreciate being involved in helping to prepare the meal, whenever appropriate, and when it's time, they can help set the table. If babies are involved, then make sure you have foods that they are able to consume, whenever age appropriate.
