Do you have any games or ideas for adding a little fun to the day? We’re thinking puzzles, pick-up sticks, painting or drawing, and play-doh could be great quiet and fun activities. We hope you all have an extra playful Thanksgiving!

    Fun ideas to keep the kids amused during the day. The Scrabble tiles could also be used for a favorite game in my 2nd grade class, which is “How many words can you make using the letters in Thanksgiving?”.
