The kids are off from school tomorrow; which means they're going to be in my way as I attempt to prepare for the big Turkey Day feast and fete. I can't plaster them in front of the television the whole day (ha), so I need to get creative with my activities. I've scoured my favorite blogs for the cutest Thanksgiving crafts.

They want to feel like they're helping with the preparations, and so I'm asking them to craft some Thanksgiving decorations and projects to display around the house. It'll keep them entertained and engaged and provide some adorably cute creations. 

We're sharing a few favorite last-minute kid-friendly DIYs to add to the to-do list tomorrow.
