Are you looking to buy one of the homes in Hamilton GA? When you find the perfect house to suit your family’s needs, you’ll certainly have something special to celebrate at Thanksgiving this year!

This annual holiday is a wonderful opportunity for families to get together and show their appreciation for one another. It can also be a fun day for your children – from watching parades on TV to playing sports and/or games with relatives. If you’re planning to host a houseful of guests this Thanksgiving, here a few ways to keep the little ones entertained all day long.

Turkey Tracks – If your children love to paint, they’ll love creating a picture of “turkey tracks”. You’ll need pipe cleaners bent into shapes resembling turkey feet, orange and brown paint and white construction paper. Have each child dip their pipe cleaner into the paint and “walk” it over the paper to make the tracks!

Turkey Pinecones – This activity requires pinecones, construction paper and markers. Your children can write out what they’re thankful for on strips of colored paper which are then attached to the pinecone to represent the turkeys’ feathers. Older children can trace their hand on the paper to create the full-feathered effect. Add some jiggly eyes and a paper beak to the pinecone, and you’ve got an interactive centerpiece that reminds guests of the true meaning of Thanksgiving.

DIY Table Runner – Have your kids design their own tablecloth for the kids’ dining table using brown kraft paper, colored markers or crayons. Each child could write their name next to their place setting, or draw pictures of pumpkins and turkeys to celebrate the occasion. The only limit is their imagination.

Cheese Tray Turkey – Enlist the help of older children in creating a turkey-themed hors d’oeuvres platter out of salami, cheese and pretzel crackers. Learn how by visiting the blog Also, That’s It.

DIY Placemats – Let your children decorate their own placemats with kraft paper, a chalkboard marker and fall colored markers. You can even use the placemats to help your children learn how to set the table. Simply trace a plate on the mat, and draw utensils on either side, so they know where these items go on the placemat when it’s time for dinner. Then, write the child’s name on the placemat to personalize it.
