Fall is one of these seasons that seems to come on fast. And then, once it is here, it is over fast. Once we send our kids back to school, the leaves start falling. Then Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas seem to appear on the horizon so quickly. As I write this, it is the last week of October and my family is already making plans for Thanksgiving.
To help those of you who are in the same boat as me, I am writing two posts to help you get ready for Thanksgiving without taking too much time away from the real focus of the holiday, family and food. They are completely intertwined, aren’t they? This page focuses on printable Thanksgiving invitations, planner stickers, banners, decorations and kids activities for the entire holiday weekend. Many kids are off of school Wednesday through Sunday which means they need activities while you get your home ready and cook your turkey and other family favorites. To find out more about each printable, click the image or button and you will go to the product page.

Printable Thanksgiving Activities for Kids
This group of printables are all different activities to keep children busy during the holiday weekend. You can use them to entertain kids while you are preparing for the gathering as well as during your get-together. Some of these activities work well for the entire family to play with together. You can also find coloring pages for kids that get bored during the meal. I love the colorful turkey which is a great activity to work on with a parent, older sibling or grandparent. The photo props are great for kids to take pictures with their cell phones and post on Instagram. Or you can have the kids dress up in Thanksgiving costumes.
