Links of Love: Turkey Day Family Fun

Every kid knows that the time before their turkey’s cooked can drag on for hours. So, short of stuffing your kids at the relish tray, find something to keep them occupied and entertained before and after the big feast. You may find that the adults enjoy the activities as much as the children do.

Last year my sister (pictured) orchestrated a family-wide turkey craft. My niece was joined by G’pa and her aunt and uncles as she and Mama decorated apples with gum drops to resemble turkeys. You can find the directions here.

Check out this huge collection of turkey crafts at Family Fun.

  1. Thanks so much for posting this! We’re having 13 people for Thanksgiving and 6 of them will be kiddos, so I was going to hunt today for crafts/fun stuff and was excited to see you’d posted some! Thanks!!! 🙂

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
