Keeping Kids Happy at Thanksgiving Dinner

The best way to keep kids patient and happy at any long family meal is to give them something to do.  Naturally kids aren’t the best at waiting, and they tend to have more time to wait since they don’t eat as much as adults.  So if you’re having kids at your Thanksgiving meal it’s good to give them something to entertain themselves. Here are some suggestions for your Thanksgiving Table this year.
