Making Thanksgiving decorations, paper turkeys and place cards are rites of childhood. Whether you are hosting Thanksgiving at your place or traveling to another dining room, your kids will probably be able to find work as ambience stylists. Pitch the idea to your kids (and your hosts) a few days ahead of the holiday and get busy with the construction paper, glue, googly eyes, pinecones, felt and–if the suction on your vacuum is up to it–glitter.
