Thanksgiving Season Has Started in Roseville CA
It’s November 1, the mild rain has been falling thru the day, and I should be working on a real estate project I started earlier for myself. But that led to Thanksgiving pictures and here I am – being delighted by a variety of Thanksgiving pictures, projects, and ideas. So I decided to combine my two loves – real estate and fun things to do in Roseville CA with grandkids!
The holiday season has definitely started and it’s time for friends and family – whether nearby, far away travel, or zooming anywhere. And I’ve got at least one idea for each of those and several for right here in Roseville CA 😀
Fun Ideas for Kids and Grandkids at Home
Check out my cute pix of jokes I made to share with my grandkids – I DO love jokes, riddles and play on words.
Notice the capitals in the PS of the picture. Washable everything for my grandkids is a mega sanity saver (and yes, I really do use Crayola – their products have never failed me). My grandkids can have fun and then we can clean up easily.
I buy washable markers, crayons, you name it, if it’s washable THAT’s what I buy. I even buy washable glue and glue sticks. Here are two of my favorites – the purple that disappears with the glue stix helps my littler grandkids figure out where they have already put the glue. 🙂
The next time my grandkids come over, we are going to have fun making these cute turkeys! Along with some fun coloring projects like this. I bought this from Edu-clips when she had her own site. Now she has moved and you can find more of her great drawings, for cute coloring pages of all kinds, at https://www.KayeSwain.com/Educlips-TeachersPayTeachers – this link goes to a different but just as cute set that comes with the pix in color AND in black and white (my fave way to buy). If you look at any others, just be sure to read the notes thru to check if you are getting the black and white version for coloring as well as the colored version for other craft options.
Holiday Cooking Things to Do With the Grandkids
Click here for a page from HGTV with tons more fun holiday things to do with the grandkids. I especially like the turkey cupcake (see it below – pinned to my “things to do in Roseville CA” Pinterest page). I already have most of the ingredients. I just need some chocolate frosting for the body – and we’ll use our round sugar cookies instead of making cupcakes. I can’t WAIT til the come over again to do this fun project.
