Just in case you forgot to also grab something for the kids to do while they wait to chow down, we’ve rounded up five activities you can still throw together at the last minute. First up is this super fun (and super easy) interactive placemat. Just print on 11″ x 14″ paper, place on the kiddie table, and you’re good to go.
While you probably don’t have time to sew these adorable pilgrim costumes today, the paper hats are a breeze. Make them before the kids show up or let them make their own while you baste the turkey.
Thankful leaves are a great reminder of what Thanksgiving is really all about. We like that this version from maya made provides prompts to help even the youngest children get involved.
Whip up a fresh batch of pumpkin pie play dough and let the little ones do a little baking of their own.
Finally, if you’re really feeling ambitious and are willing to make a few stops, these faux pumpkin pies are sure to delight. It will take printing out some photos and making a last-minute trip to the dollar store but the look on the faces of your young guests will be worth it.
