Tomorrow is turkey day. So, it is a great day to read Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving by Dav Pilkey and The Night Before Thanksgiving by Natasha Wing. While the rhythm of the story is the same, they are two very different books.
This is a good opportunity to talk to your own children about what you are doing to get ready for the holiday. Are you cooking already? Will you set the table today?
Ask your child what they think needs to be done to get ready for the holiday. What can they do to help? Children at this age love to help, and if you give them the right tasks, they can do it! Check out Momable’s list of things children can do in the kitchen by age. Or if you don’t want your child helping in the kitchen… they can set the table. Make place cards/placemats or other table decorations.
I am taking some time off to be with my family over the holidays. I will be back on December 1st… don’t ask what topic, I haven’t decided yet… oops!
