Here is a terrific craft for the kids to make for the Thanksgiving season. Easy and quick to hold little ones attention, but older kids can make it as decorative at they would like.
Your family could easily make an extra to take to a local retirement/care center, even if you don’t know anyone there, they would surely appreciate some cheer and your thoughtfulness. This would be a great time to talk, as a family, of blessings to be grateful for.
