Do you need something to keep the kids engaged while you finish Thanksgiving meal prep?

 Now that I am an adult, I see how much preparation and planning goes into Thanksgiving Day.  Children are they should be! I'm here to help you make the morning a little less stressful for you, too!

Growing up, I LOVED watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.  When I had my own children, I was a little shocked at how uninterested they were in the parade on television.  What?!!  If we are home, I still turn it on and tell my children to wait for the Big Guy in Red at the end.  

Let's be honest, kids want to move and do things.  This printable will give your children something to do while they watch the parade.  They can use the printable to draw their own parade balloon.

If you have party balloons and construction paper on hand, pull those out! Invite your children to actually make the balloon. 

You can also have your children go on a scavenger hunt from the couch!  These are always a hit for my children.  And it will give them something to do, while you finish baking that pie.

If you still have some more cooking to do, turn on the dog show and see if your kiddos can find these dogs:

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
