  1. The Sibling Sous-Chef Showdown: Assign kitchen duties to your kids. Not only will you get some much-needed help, but you’ll also be treated to the most entertaining cooking show ever. Sibling rivalry might just create culinary magic.

  2. The Tofurkey Diversion: To avoid endless debates about the turkey, announce that this year, you’re making a Tofurkey. Then watch the confusion and disbelief on everyone’s faces before revealing the real turkey. Laughter guaranteed.

  3. The Great “Dishes Jenga” Game: Stack the dirty dishes into a precarious tower and challenge your guests to remove them without causing an avalanche. A great way to keep guests engaged and buy you some extra time for a breather.

  4. The “Tablecloth Redesign” Contest: Let the kids draw and color on a paper tablecloth. Not only does this keep them occupied, but it also results in a unique Thanksgiving table masterpiece.

  5. The “Thanksgiving Playlist”: Create a Thanksgiving playlist filled with songs that celebrate gratitude and joy. Cue up some upbeat tunes to keep the atmosphere cheerful and fun.

  6. The “Potluck” Pact: Don’t be shy about asking your guests to bring a dish or two. It’s a win-win situation; they get to share their favorite recipes, and you get to share the workload.

  7. The “Kitchen Escape” Strategy: Escape to the kitchen, put on an apron, and act like you’re working on something important. It’s the ultimate mom excuse to avoid awkward conversations or escape sibling rivalries for a few precious moments.

  8. The “Craft Corner” for Kids: Set up a craft station for the little ones, complete with Thanksgiving-themed coloring sheets and supplies. They’ll be happily occupied, and you can enjoy a few moments of peace.
