Like, a lot.
To keep the peace, I like to provide my kiddos with hands-on activities they can do on Thanksgiving to keep the whining down as we make the most complicated meal of the year.
Here are 25+ fun and educational Thanksgiving printables you can print up to keep your kids occupied on Thanksgiving Day.
