Thanksgiving DIY with Your Blended Family

Written by Sarah Paterson

This Thanksgiving I have my stepchildren from Friday until Monday at 4pm even though we are suppose to receive them on Monday at 1pm. Good old right of first refusal leaves me on a block of 11 nights and 12 days in a row. Whaaaaaat what what?!? All good as I am not worried! This has inspired me to come up with some ideas to keep my kids and my stepkids busy and off electronics without hearing, "I'm bored, ugh!". Especially my five year old who has upped her game on keeping busy these days! Now even though it is a lot of work, my stepkids are something that I am very grateful for. I have always wanted a large family and you know what they say, "watch what you wish for!".

Here are some of activities we recommend over Thanksgiving:
