My son Jacob and I were talking about Thanksgiving coming up and he tells me “I’m looking forward to your activities”. I paused, not understanding what he was talking about and asked “What activities?”. He replies, “Like your Thanksgiving Joke Teller“….. While I was happy he appreciated my efforts last year, I felt bad I hadn’t come up with anything new for this year. Not wanted to let him down, I decided to design a Thanksgiving-themed placemat with fun activities including a maze, word search, how-to-draw and one of their favorites – a secret decoder message to solve!
Because 2020 could definitely use a little more humor and a lot less…. well…. 2020, I designed a joke-telling cootie catcher in an attempt to help spread a few laughs. This fun Thanksgiving printable will keep kids of all ages occupied and is a great way to interact over Zoom with family members who can’t be with you in person this holiday season.
