I can’t believe it is almost time for Thanksgiving again. I feel like I am in the Spy Kids movie, All the Time in the World, where a timekeeper steals time. Someone is definitely stealing time, because it is flying by way too fast! 8O

Time for some fun Thanksgiving activity ideas and more!

I made a couple of coloring page for you guys. Enjoy!
