Thanksgiving can be such a busy day. With family, guests, and all the preparation required for a holiday feast, there is so much to think about and so much to do!

I’ve rounded up a collection of recipes and activities to help your holiday run smoothly. With easy breakfast ideas, quick midday snacks, and family friendly crafts and activities, you can spend your time focusing on the much anticipated meal.

With all the time you have to spend in the kitchen on Thanksgiving, Breakfast needs to be simple and quick. These breakfast ideas will save you time and get the day off to a good start. In fact, most of these recipes can be put together the night before so you don’t have to think about breakfast at all on Thanksgiving.
