Thanksgiving is the time of year when we take stock of our lives and appreciate what is most important- our children! You may want to give them a Thanksgiving gift- a token of thanks by which they will remember you for years to come.
We have brainstormed and come up with a list of the best Thanksgiving gift ideas for kids:
A Thanksgiving Gift of Books from The Lollipop Book Club: Take a few moments to write a special note for a child. Then pick a wonderful Thanksgiving children’s book. We will top it off with a Thanksgiving lollipop and send it off to the child in a bright package. This is truly a Thanksgiving gift for kids that will never be forgotten!
A Day Out on the Town: Cities and towns are wonderful to visit right around Thanksgiving time. There is a spirited energy in the air and decorations for the upcoming holidays adorn the storefronts. Walk through the streets, take your child to lunch, and treat him or her to something special in a small toy or gift shop. The entire experience and your time is the best Thanksgiving gift you can give to a child.
Basket of Turkey Day Crafts: Another great Thanksgiving gift idea is a big basket full of festive crafts. Fill the basket with construction paper, markers, scissors, glue, pompoms, feathers, googly eyes, and crayons. Pick up some inexpensive Thanksgiving craft kits at the craft store and toss those in as well. You will be all set to enjoy some creative time with your child- what a perfect Thanksgiving gift!
A Pre-Thanksgiving Day Dinner: Many households are extremely busy with all of the Thanksgiving dinner preparations that children sometimes miss the whole point of the celebration. By the time you are done cleaning, cooking, baking, setting the table, etc., you are exhausted and the dinner has not even begun. Throw a pile of guests into the mix and things get just plain hectic. So here’s a Thanksgiving gift you can give to your child- a pre-Thanksgiving Day Dinner! Keep it simple- just buy some thick turkey slices from the deli, whip up some mashed potatoes, pick up a frozen veggie, roles, and bakery pie! Voila! There’s your dinner. Sit down with your child and talk about all of the reasons you are thankful.
