How to keep kids happy while the turkey’s in the oven

Kids can be poets tooIt’s a fact of life that kids get bored… especially on Thanksgiving, when they’re thrown together with other kids they don’t know too well. Your image of a lovely family holiday can fade as quickly as a kid can whine When we gonna EAT?

I love this idea that anyone can be a poet, from education.com. Choose a wide theme: everywhere Thanksgiving is celebrated, things to be thankful for… and let them go to town!

Bonus: the older kids can help the younger ones, so everyone’s having fun while you slave over a hot stove.
