Boston (PRWEB) October 31, 2007 -- Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to express gratitude and to be with family, but with all of the travel and preparation, it can also be stressful. This year, before the turkey even goes into the oven, start to celebrate and plan a stress-free holiday with Thanksgiving activities and resources for parents and kids, available on FamilyEducation.com.
"We all look forward to celebrating Thanksgiving with family and friends, but the travel, planning and hard work can make it a tiring and stressful time as well, particularly for parents," said Jess M. Brallier, publisher, FamilyEducation. "With the resources on FamilyEducation, families will have everything they need for a happy and thankful Thanksgiving, from tips for planning a tasty dinner to holiday-themed decorations and great activities that will help remind everyone what the holiday is all about."
FamilyEducation's "Thanksgiving Menu Planner" will help shake up this year's feast with some new tasty recipes for dishes, such as garlic mashed potatoes and pumpkin gingerbread. There is even a great Thanksgiving turkey recipe to help ensure that the bird comes out of the oven delicious and a perfect golden brown.
The site's many Thanksgiving printables for children offer plenty of fun and educational activities for keeping busy while traveling over the river and through the woods. There are Thanksgiving turkey and pilgrim coloring pages and puzzles, such as the Thanksgiving dinner maze, and more. Plus, the site has lots of travel games that the whole family can play to make for a smooth and entertaining journey.
While parents are cooking dinner and getting the house ready for company, kids can decorate with the Thanksgiving arts and craft ideas from FamilyEducation. Thanksgiving guests will look great in the pilgrim hats the kids make, and everyone will know just where to sit at the dinner table with the festive turkey place cards made from the template on FamilyEducation.
After the big meal, the family can use the ideas from the site's Top 10 Thanksgiving Activities for Families to have some fun and burn off calories faster than sitting on the sofa and watching football games. And, best of all, everyone will be together making memories of a happy, thankful Thanksgiving that will last a lifetime.
