As a Mom, Thanksgiving has become my favorite holiday. Lots of food, hanging out with the family, no pressure to shop or buy gifts.
The kids aren't interested in Maw Maw's tales of the old days on the farm or stories about Aunt Teeny's divorce.
Here are some options to keep them occupied at the dinner table while the rest of the adults enjoy their adult time.
In Tuscaloosa, you can purchase Thanksgiving-themed coloring mats at stores like Kyle Fine Stationery. Check stores in your local area - chances are, they'll have some options for you.
Or you can print them out from online sources (Google print Thanksgiving placemats to color). This is another great one, and it offers different mats for different age groups, too.
You can also order them from companies like Oriental Trading and Amazon. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, don't hesitate - get something going now, so you won't have to think about it later.
Happy Thanksgiving, from this busy mom to all the others out there!
