It's always a good idea to have some games for the kids to keep busy while you're cooking and prepping for the big meal. Why not put together a quick "puzzle" for the younger ones?
Cut 2 paper straws in half, then cut in half again to make 8 quarters. Cut another straw in half, and you'll need one last quarter piece. This will make up the menorah and 8 candles.
I put my set in a muslin bag, and used sharpies in colors similar to the straws to color on the bag and customize it for 2013.
This is a great gift to make if you're having a bunch of kiddos over for Thanksgivukkah, you can add each child's name to the bag!
