50+ Thanksgiving Crafts, Recipes and Activities to do with Kids

50+ Thanksgiving Crafts, Recipes, & Activities for Kids from Bombshell Bling

I tend to neglect the Thanksgiving season.  I think that a lot of us do, actually.  But now that my son is three he is starting to really understand and get excited about holidays, and the more I focus on those holidays with him the happier and more pumped up he gets.  So I decided to bust out my Thanksgiving books and art supplies and bring on the joy of Thanksgiving!  (Oh yeah, and take down the Halloween decorations—ahem.) I had a lot of fun finding all of these crafts, recipes, and activities.  I hope that you enjoy MAKING and DOING some of them!
