The night before Thanksgiving Day, we go ahead and set the table which includes gathering some activities for the kids and putting a few things at their place settings to keep them occupied during times when they might be waiting at the table the next day.
I have a basket of goodies ready to go for the big day! Nothing fancy – just picture books and a few projects to engage my kids as we focus on what a special holiday Thanksgiving is for our family.

Of the many activities we have done, I think this Pumpkin Pie craft has been the biggest hit of all.
We took turns adding our fingerprints to the tree, and then we talked about what a gift from God we are to each other.
