Thanksgiving crafts and activities


Have an Intergenerational Thanksgiving This Year
by Susan Dunn

Make it an inter-generational event this year and have fun preparing. Here are some Thanksgiving crafts and activities the whole family can enjoy.

1. Print out some pictures to color for decorations.

2. How about some Thanksgiving games ... the popcorn relay, or the Thankerchief game? A great way to involved young and old.

3. Some paper games to work on while the guys watch the game?

4. Here's a place where you can make your own Thanksgiving tablecloth.

5. Want to make some homemade candleholders? A good way to use those old babyfood jars.

6. Print out the Thanksgiving trivia quiz and play before dinner while you're waiting for the turkey to get done.

7. Check out Grandpa Tucker's silly Thanksgiving songs. "Pum-pum Pum-pum Pumpkin Pie" is sure to get the giggles going.

8. Before the occasion, get those Pilgrim hats ready. Everyone will need one!

9. Make some Blessings Mix for friends and family.

Bugles symbolize cornucopia; seeds and nuts for harvest; M&Ms for memories, candy corn for the Pilgrim's sacrifice - living on corn kernels; pretzels for arms folded in prayer, and Hershey's kisses for the love that abounds. Great gift tags you can print out that tell them all about the symbolism in this gift! Something easy the kids can help make.

10. And last but not least, make some "thank you" certificates for everyone who helped out--won't Mom be thrilled!
