Thanksgiving may be my favorite American holiday. It’s got some tough competition with the heat of the 4th of July, the pride of Memorial Day, the love of Valentine’s Day, and the spook of Halloween, but there’s something about the family time associated with Turkey Day that brings it to the top. Between the football, food, and family, I’m a happy camper. Though there’s one thing missing from that list, though, that will bring your Thanksgiving from fabulous to one to remember forever. Weave Thanksgiving crafts for kids into your celebration, and the quality of your family time will increase tenfold. The inherent cooperation, creative charge, and excitement associated with crafting will bond the family like no other activity.
