I love holidays too. And actually, my love of holidays is what has inspired today's post. When I was younger, I always had visions in my head of these huge family holiday dinners where my kids and their cousins would be sitting at the table like little adults with their perfectly ironed outifts and their perfectly just-so hair with their freshly washed hands and faces. Clearly, this vision came way before the actual kids did. If you've ever tried to actually entertain with children, you know what a joke this is. I still consider myself pretty new to this whole parenting thing, but one thing I HAVE learned is that when I need my kids to sit still, I better have a few tricks up my sleeve. Which is one of the reasons I love the folks over at Family Fun. Did you realize they have a whole "downloads and printables" section on their website? If you are even thinking about entertaining with kids this holiday (or any other) you need to check it out. For Thanksgiving, they've got printable coloring pages, games and activities all totally cute and all with a "Thanksgiving" theme. Put these out on your kids table this year and you might be giving thanks for five more minutes of adult-conversation. And it doesn't stop there! There's even some downloads for you too! They've got recipe cards, shopping lists and party planning helps to download too. And its all free! By the way, don't just file this one under Thanksgiving, they've got printables for EVERYTHING! (If you are still searching for Halloween party ideas, their printables are super cute). No matter what the occassion, you can always count on them to have something to entertain the troops and make you look like you've got it all together! I won't tell if you won't!
