My girls really wanted to be involved in making our Thanksgiving meal this year - which was fun and a bit challenging to find work for a 9 year old and a nearly 6 year old to do. I make everything from scratch - so...
I saw this cute idea on Pinterest and set the girls at it.
It kept the girls happy and they felt like they had accomplished something and contributed to dinner.
*And of course, I let them help out where ever else they could - I love to see the satisfaction on their faces after helping/making something themselves.
