When my kids get rowdy and start doing all sorts of nonsense, it is usually because they don't have anything better to do. Idle minds are a dangerous thing. If you need some activities to keep your kids busy, crafts are usually a good idea. So, here are some links to craft ideas for this month. Have your kids take a break from jumping on the sofa or messing up the house. Offer them some creative down time.
Raising Olives shares her recipe for salt dough. Give your child a chance to enjoy some molding, sculpting and painting.

Cute turkeys made out of pinecones from FamilyFun . There's even a video to show you how to do it.
Another turkey craft: A Thanksgiving turkey by Crafts-For-All-Seasons . This one will look great as a centrepiece for your Thanksgiving table. There are step-by-step instructions and pictures too.
Little Gobbler by Woman's Day . It's decorating a paper cup to look like a turkey. But more than that, you can fill the cup later with treats like popcorn. Yummm... I'm sure the kids will like that.
