Here's a simple Thanksgiving craft that even a toddler can do.
This was the first time I'd done finger paints with my youngest. At first she was really hesitant, but once she understood I was okay with her making a huge mess, she went wild. Don't be afraid to do things with your kids just because it will be messy. They need to experience all sorts of different textures, smells, sounds, etc. They also need an outlet for creative energy. Crayons can only take you so far, you know?
