Thanksgiving Ideas for Kids

Looking for some quick and easy Thanksgiving ideas for kids? Every week, Megan Sheakoski of Coffee Cups and Crayons hosts the Coffee Break, a Google Hangout event featuring creative bloggers from around web sharing great kid-friendly ideas. This week, Megan invited me along with MaryAnne from Mama Smiles and Kim from The Educators Spin On It to chat about fun Thanksgiving ideas for kids. (Thanks so much for having me, Megan!)

In case you missed this week’s episode, you can view the clip below, or by clicking here. I especially loved Megan’s healthy snack idea of making turkeys out of fruit, and the handprint craft MaryAnne shared! So creative!!

If you’re on Google+, be sure to add these creative moms to your circles for inspiring kids’ crafts, activity ideas, and more!

  1. It was such a pleasure to be able to “hangout” with you today Valerie, you shared two really cute ideas that will be a part of our Thanksgiving this month! Thanks for always inspiring me and my girls with your creative ideas! Can’t wait to see what else you share this holiday season.

  2. This hangout was so much fun! I love your wreath! So simple, upcycles paper bags, and looks fantastic!

    And I agree with Megan, those peas look pretty amazing 🙂
