Thanksgiving Fun For Young and Old – And Easy to Do Too!

by Kaye Swain

A Thanksgiving wreath from the grandkids with love Bible verses and sweet family memoriesAutumn is in full swing – the fall foliage has been GORGEOUS. Halloween was full of fun moments and tastes and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Moving is still taking up WAY too much time, but I’m ready for at least one or two fun and EASY crafts for the grandkids, not to mention us boomers and seniors, to get us even more “in the mood.” How about you?

  1. Spoonful has a fun Thanksgiving appetizer using pears and apples and oranges and more. Since I’m overloaded with apples right now (my grandkids fave!) I’m going to try it with just apples and see how that goes.
  2. Here’s a fun project from Better Homes and Gardens that would work well for older grandkids or our senior parents to help. I’m thinking Dollar Store visit, here we come. :)
  3. Beth Hunter of HomeStoriesAtoZ has several cute and easy fall crafts – fun for the whole family from grandkids and kids all the way up to boomers and seniors. I especially love cinnamon stick projects. How about you?

And don’t forget, there’s plenty of goodies to work on to be found in past pages of SandwichINK, like:

  1. Last year’s series, Holiday Fun With The Whole Family – From Grandkids to Sweet Seniors – While Sharing The Word of God – Psalm 119 , Psalm 118 , and Psalm 100.
  2. Build Grand Memories With Thanksgiving Place Cards and Placemats
  3. Give a Hand to Thanksgiving Fun With Grandchildren – with one of my all time fave Thanksgiving projects – a wreath made with my grandkids hand prints!

I love sharing the Word of God with all - especially my grandkids

That should keep us pretty busy over the next three weeks, especially when you add in the boxes I’m still putting away (CAN YOU BELIEVE THANKSGIVING IS SO CLOSE!). How about you? Got any fun and easy crafts you and your grandkids love to do to share with us. We’d love to hear about them in the comments. And have a blessed and beautiful week.  :)

P.S. Thank you so much for your comments. I enjoy them very much and read each one. I also love the grand ideas so many of you share that help and encourage other readers. I do my best to reply to them all but value your patience when that isn\'t possible.

Coming over from your visit on my site! Wow, I can’t believe I didn’t find your site sooner. Although my mom still lives on her own, I am still the one to help her get to her doctor’s appointments, go shopping, and help around the garden. But, on the other side of the scale, I am also the babysitter to my granchildren when they are sick or have short days at school, or whenever their mom and dad need a night out! Although I don’t think I would have it any other way, there are times when I get upset with my other two sisters that they don’t help out with my mom and leave it all up to me! Oh well – at least I won’t have any guilt when she is gone! Thanks for being here – I’m going to follow you on facebook!

:) Thanks Kc – I’m hoping to entice my grandboys to do the Thankful hands today. They are getting older and it may be a bit young for them. Minecraft and card games and Carcassone are more their “thang” now. :) But we’ll see. And if not, I can save that for my next visit to my not-so-long-distance-anymore grandkids. :)

Hi Vickie, and welcome! WOW! That definitely puts you square into the Sandwich Generation and must keep you extra hopping – especially with your cool retirement plan projects. Though I bet those are often fun to share with the grandkids. :) :) :) Have a blessed and beautiful day. Can’t wait to hear the next chapter in the acorns project! :)
