One of the best parts of the holidays is getting together with family and friends. There’s so much to be thankful for when you’ve got a full house. But visiting goes hand in hand with entertaining, and that part of your hosting duties can sometimes be difficult – especially if it involves a lot of children. If your home is overrun by rambunctious youngsters we have got just the thing for you to try: crafts! We’ve compiled a list of fun and engaging Thanksgiving crafts. Check them out below, you’ll be thankful you did.
