Thanksgiving Boredom Busters

Typically we are so psyched for the first big holiday break of the school year. During the Thanksgiving time off, we normally get to unwind with our kids, visit with family, catch up on shopping and errands, but this year we are basically doing none of that (except for the excessive time spent with our kids)! You have probably exhausted every arsenal in your bag of tricks for keeping your kids busy, entertained, and hopefully off screens (yeah right).

I’ve gathered a few goodies together that might help with the Thanksgiving ennui…both yours and your kids! Click the links below to shop!

1| Rainbow Wall Hanging Weaving Kit. I’ve seen these adorable crafts all over Instagram and here’s a kit to make one for yourself!

2| The Handmade Charlotte Playbook will keep your kids busy through next spring! Handmade Charlotte has been serving up delightful crafts and treats for years, and now it’s your turn to own this amazing craft encyclopedia. If you need to stock up on your crafts supplies, I’ve saved my faves to this Amazon list!

3| Stay in the Thanksgiving spirit with this adorable Thanksgiving Craft Kit from Cottonwood Home. It comes with 6 activities to get your gobble on! (Their words, not mine!)

4| Another craft craze that I can’t get enough of is the punch needle activity. This Wool Queen Punch Needle Kit comes with everything you need to make this beautiful, colorful landscape. You may even want to take over once the kids go to bed…it’s SO satisfying! If you are interested in more punch need projects, check out Rose Pearlman’s book, Modern Rug Hooking. She’s the queen of this skill!

5| Get the littlest of hands started in the fiber arts with this Little Explorers Play Bead Sewing Kit. It comes with al the basic supplies to help your little one experiment with his or her first sewing project.

7| I am ready to add this Woven Beaded Ring kit to my shopping cart! This is a great activity for the phone-obsessed tweens and teens in your life.
