Thanksgiving Activity Book for Kids - Free Printable!



My kids are finally at the age where they can actively participate in conversations and stay focused at family meals.  It wasn't too long ago though that their interest waned very quickly.  Often times meal times for young moms feels a whole lot more like "corralling" then "eating".

The holidays are a fun time for getting together with family and enjoying "long" family meals.  Many times this poses a problem even for the most patient child.  The children usually eat quickly and are ready to head off to play with their cousins.  Last year, as I foresaw this problem,  I covered the kids table in brown paper so they could draw on the "tablecloth".   It was a hit.  This year I decided to do something different and create a printable to help keep the kiddos entertained.


I created a total of 8 different pages to print out.  Here are some more examples of some of the pages: 



My plan is to print them out, bind them with twine and have one sitting at each of the kids' places.


You may print this activity book out here for your own personal use if you'd like.

Enjoy!  I know we are going to!


P.S. My daughter caught a glimpse of the Activity Book last night and was very excited!

    1. If you hover over the words "print this activity book out here" they should change color. That is a link to a media fire file. Go to that file and click on download. Once it is downloaded to your computer you can print it out. :) Trust that helps. Let me know if you still have trouble.
