The most delicious day of they year is almost here! Put on your stretch pants and enjoy the festivities to the fullest with our Kidsguide Turkey Day Game Plan.

 

Thanksgiving Week Mini-Camps

Your kids are off from school all week! But will they really love shopping for cranberries at Costco? Give yourself a little headspace while your kids goof off with perky camp leaders at these fun Thanksgiving week mini-camps. Snag your spots now.

 

Tremendous Turkey Trots

Plan ahead to burn off those dinner rolls with a super-fun morning turkey trot. Kids and strollers are welcome! Here are 7 winners you can register for now. And don’t worry about racing for a medal – they’re all about fun (and turkey hats).

 

Manners Crash Course

Let’s face it, all of us need a little etiquette refresher now and then — especially when company’s coming! Stage a little rehearsal with your brood with this printable list from expert Emily Post.

 

Give Back

Your family is so fortunate — you’d love to drive your kids straight over to a soup kitchen to help people who aren’t.  Hold that thought! The truth is, at this point service agencies likely have plenty of volunteers for Thanksgiving, but they’ll still need your help for Christmas and beyond. Make a big red note on your calendar to check this great list of kid-friendly volunteer opportunities.

 

Kid Power!

Grandma’s at the airport, the turkey’s thawing and your dining room table’s a blank canvas. Put your kiddos to work with these easy recipes, a pretty Thankful Tree centerpiece or entertaining cousins. Find tons of Turkey Day activities for toddlers to teens on Kidsguide’s Thanksgiving Pinterest board.

 

Set a Great Kids’ Table

Too many guests for the main event? Set up an inviting Kids’ Table (that doesn’t feel like Siberia) with these ideas from Tip Junkie. Another bright idea: slip $20 to your teenage nephew and put him in charge of the kiddos. Everyone will be thankful

 

We wish you a wonderful holiday!
