KEEP YOUR LITTLE TURKEYS FROM ACTING LIKE ONE!
TURKEYS ON TURKEY DAY:
When the kids get itchy about five minutes after arriving, I like to get them involved in the process. While I will have the paper already set up on the table, I have a section in the kitchen with unbreakable dishes waiting for them to set the table as they wish. I might have a "pretend" pie crust with fillings or other easy-to-make appetizers to keep little hands busy, I'll have an already hallowed out pumpkin and decorations so they can decorate their little hearts out. If parents don't mind (I always ask ahead of time) I have miniature Christmas trees waiting in the wings for each little guest to decorate after dinner and take home (small trees at the dollar store are perfect..and, guess what..they're a DOLLAR..and little collections of ornaments are also a dollar). This year sit back, relax and enjoy the fun spirit of the holiday and the little guests swirling around it.
