Looking for fun things to make, do and buy this weekend before the holiday craziness really sets in? Check out these inspiring ideas...
Make a "Thankful" Book
We love this sweet, easy, leading-up-to-Thanksgiving project from Kinderpendent: Have your kids write down what they're thankful for each day (with illustrations!) and then staple or sew the pages together to form a book. Want more easy Thanksgiving craft ideas? Check out these projects from iVillage.
The tap-dancing penguins of Happy Feet are back! Happy Feet Two (rated PG) opens in theaters today -- and in addition to the 3D effects and penguin cuteness, you can entertain yourself by trying to match up the characters with the all-star cast of voices, including Robin Williams and Brad Pitt.
Put Together the Perfect Cheese Plate
The holidays are almost upon us... which means that people will probably be stopping by your house at some point over the next month -- and they'll expect to be fed. Impress them with an easy, well-put-together cheese plate. (Thank you, Joy the Baker.) Did we mention that we love cheese?
Give Thank (You)s
We love the adorable Thank You cards from Draw Me a Lion that we found on Cool Mom Picks. The set of six includes three different designs -- and might even inspire your kids to put pen (or crayon) to paper.
