Pumpkin Pie: Orange and spicy, with a dollop of whip, I sure am yummy!
It’s autumn and time for a series of holidays that will keep your kids busy throughout the next few months. First up is Halloween … which leads into Thanksgiving only 4 weeks later. What is wonderful about these holidays is they fall within the fall season and use the same color scheme. As a result, many of the things you purchase for one can be used for the other. This reduces the amount of money you need to spend on the kids’ fun during this season.
Large holidays meals can be a wonderful way to enjoy a feast with family and friends. However, it’s a long time for young children to sit at the table. Here are 5 ideas to make long meals enjoyable for even the squirmiest kids:
1. Fun Drinks. Set out special colored glasses or cups, perhaps plastic would work well, and outfit them with crazy straws, umbrellas, fruit, and ice cubes with holiday gummies frozen inside. The kids will be delighted with the fun drinks.
It’s Thanksgiving week and the kids are off school and looking for something to do. I love Family Style’s round-up of last minute craft ideas that are both simple and festive.
