In the United States, Thanksgiving is observed on the fourth Thursday in November.  It is the day that we give thanks for all that we have.  It is a day of family and traditions. It is a day of history.  It can also be a very adult day–a bit tedious for children.

Perhaps you can think of, and incorporate games, crafts and new traditions geared towards the younger members of your family.  Just googling fun Thanksgiving ideas for kids will give you a great start.

And how about a few Thanksgiving jokes?

If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring?       PILGRIMS!

What key has legs and can’t open doors?       A TURKEY!

Besides carrots and potatoes, what kind of vegetables go great with turkey?       BEETS me!

Happy Thanksgiving!  And remember, fun learning is forever learning.
